Why we sponsor the C4E Forum
The ROCKWOOL Group believe energy efficiency is a key tool to contribute to several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and should be recognised as a priority independently from the source of energy supply, because of its own value in terms of delivering benefits in the form of thermal comfort, reduction of energy poverty, reduction of peak demand, energy security and improved air quality. Building an energy efficiency community for CEE countries can be a great place to share knowledge and learnings on energy efficiency projects, policies and programmes happening in the region.
