About us

for ESG Activation Investments

The ENGAGE project, funded by the European Union, is working towards reaching the EU’s energy efficiency and climate objectives. Our goal is to:

  • Provide clarification and standardisation to the European real estate lending market via the development of a dedicated data template that comprises critical fields needed to assess the alignment of mortgages and home renovation loans with the EU Taxonomy and other relevant regulations. s
  • Address the complexities in navigating the EU Taxonomy Regulation and its derived legislation by creating the ENGAGE Portal to help financial institutions check the alignment of their mortgages and home renovation loans with the Taxonomy.
  • Facilitate the creation of a European sustainable finance ecosystem that allows for analysis, integration, and reduction of risks for energy efficiency investments across the European Union.
