This session brought together a small group of thought leaders from the financial sector, along with utilities, government, real estate developers and academia in a closed-door working session to identify best practices and practical opportunities for financing low-carbon buildings.
When talking about green cities and communities, sometimes health and quality of life benefits get forgotten in favour of energy savings and efficiency.
For those consumers who are looking to green their homes, for financial or environmental reasons, banks have seen an opportunity.
