Bratislava, March 31, 2021 – The Slovak Investment Holding (SIH) considers renovation of public buildings to be crucial in tackling the climate change. It perceives a great return-on-investment potential in energy efficiency. SIH believes that non-repayable funds should be supplemented by repayable resources that might multiply the effect of the investment.
“It is important to set the system in a way that energy savings are achieved in reality, as opposed to merely on paper. Only then can we speak of any rate of financial return,” said Ivan Lesay, SIH’s CEO in a discussion headlined Renovation of Public Buildings: How to Use the Potential in the Recovery Plan that was organized by the Buildings for Future (Budovy pre budúcnosť) platform.
