Poland has been a leader amongst its European constituents in achieving its goal for net-zero emission by 2050, which has expressed through the Polish Green Building Council (PLGBC) in collaboration with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
Poland's blueprint for this goal consists of innovating its infrastructure and developing procedures to reduce or eliminate its emissions. This motive has been made in motion through Poland, adhering to the Paris Agreement and The EBRD's mission of transitioning to a low-carbon economy. One of Poland's strategies is decarbonizing the country's infrastructure, such as buildings, which has shown to be one of the most cost-effective ways to mitigate the adverse effects of impending climate decomposition. Poland's ambitions and its persistent investment contributions from the EBRD has spurred investments for its communities to transition to low carbon. This will lead to significant environmental and social impacts while providing an opportunity for greener investments.
