Webinar - Job creation and workforce development for building renovation (BPIE)

Date: 2 December

Time: 14:00 - 15:30 CET

Sustainable home renovation brings a benefit-cost ratio of 4:1, resulting in reduced healthcare costs, obviating energy subsidies, and the creation of local jobs and professional opportunities. In fact, nearly 60% of home renovation expenditure is attributed to labour, making it a key element of job creation post-COVID-19.

Both the new US administration and the European Commission repeatedly point out that an investment in green technology (including refurbishment of the building stock) is a job creator. What are the actual numbers? What kind of jobs are created (high vs. low value jobs)? Which types of jobs are replaced? How sustainable is this job creation? 

The webinar will focus on energy efficiency as a jobs multiplier to create more and better jobs in multiple sectors of the economy. Speakers from both sides of the Atlantic will discuss training opportunities and initiatives greening the job market.

Join us on December 2nd, to listen to and discuss these important topics and hear from a distinguished panel of speakers regarding energy efficiency and the workforce.
