The 9th Baltic housing conference, organised under the auspices of the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the EU, provides space for discussions on best practice in the EU for improving the living environment. It will introduce Estonian experiences with energy efficiency in multi-apartment buildings. Another aim is to enhance cooperation between housing organisations from the EU and countries such as Ukraine and Belarus.
The conference will focus on the possibilities for citizens to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and help fulfill the targets of the 2030 climate and energy framework by reducing the energy consumption of buildings.
The conference declaration of participating housing organisations will define the specific concerns of the sector and contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. On the following day, there will be a study visit to Rakvere, introducing the best examples of how the energy efficiency of buildings is being improved and greenhouse gas emissions reduced in the area.
