The Swedish Government allocated SEK 6.2 billion for Local Investments Programmes (LIP) to support the process of change needed to achieve sustainable development. This is the largest investment in ecological sustainability to date in Sweden. As a result, over half of all municipalities in Sweden received LIP grants between 1998 and 2002. "Hammarby Sjöstadsverket tests new treatment methods" is one example of LIP.
Deep building renovation represents one of the single most critical
tools to massively lower Europe's CO2 emissions, create jobs in

is an innovative two year Horizon 2020 project, aimed at helping
European countries design and implement strong, long-term
national strategies for the renovation of their existing buildings.
