FALCO is a EU-funded project that stands for "Financing Ambitious Local Climate Objectives". The project aims to remove financial barriers for specific 'breakthrough projects' by developing innovative financing solutions and actually testing them in the field. The gap that is wishes to bridge is the fact that, although many cities want to focus on sustainability and climate neutrality, they often lack concrete tools, especially in the approach to financing.
On September 5, 2017 FALCO kicked-off its first event and now, four years later, we are pleased to announce the Final Event for the project. A lot of results have been achieved and even more learning processes have been completed. We started with five breakthrough projects and then developed financing solutions for three of these breakthrough projects. among these, two financing solutions have actually already been applied in Flanders. Hopefully the concrete application of the financing solution for the third breakthrough project will also follow. We are therefore happy to share our experiences with you. Would you like to be there? Then Save the Date for November 18th 2021 (morning and networking lunch). Please write to us if you wish to attend and we will keep you in the loop with the details ( see the email below).
The event will take place in Flanders ( Belgium) with the exact place to be determined. Language of the event is Flemish.
On the Programme:
- Strategic portfolio management to enable cost-efficient deep energy renovations of public buildings
- Third Party Financing through ESCOs for the renovation of public/private instututions such as nursing homes and healthcare centres
- Acceleration of the renovation of private homes by offering a personal long-term loan
Experiences from other initiatives related to financing climate investments will also be included during the event.
We hope to welcome many of you on November 18th. Depending on the Covid measures that may be in place, we will provide a network lunch after the event.
