The story so far

SMARTER4EU builds upon the achievements of the SMARTER Finance for Families (SFFF) project, which successfully expanded Green Homes & Green Mortgage (GHGM) programs across 14 European countries and led to the planning or construction of green homes valued at over €8.5 billion with the support of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program.  

The new Smarter Finance for EU project (SMARTER4EU) aims to build on this success by accelerating the transition to verified green homes and tailored finance. This includes both markets where programs have already been initiated and new partners in Spain and Portugal, with an additional focus on post-war rebuilding efforts in Ukraine. 

This pan-European project has partners from Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, and Ukraine. It has been established to decisively shift the market toward credible green home certifications for both new builds and retrofit projects. To ensure credible environmental performance and robust governance, the project aligns with the green finance definitions in the EU’s new taxonomy for sustainable activities and utilizes the EU’s Level(s) sustainable buildings framework as well as CEN standards.
