Business Finland's RRF Low Carbon Built Environment Export Campaign is organizing a trade mission to Krakow on 10-11 April, 2024.

Following the successful low carbon built environment RRF-related activities by Business Finland in Warsaw last year, the focus now shifts to Krakow for a trade mission aimed at fostering regional cooperation. This endeavor seeks to forge strong business collaboration for Finnish companies while establishing direct connections with prospective Polish partners and influential stakeholders.

During the visit, Business Finland, in collaboration with its partner, will organize tailored B2B meetings, a networking event, and/or site visits to engage with local stakeholders firsthand.

Poland stands out as one of Europe's largest construction markets, boasting an impressive annual production output of €115 billion. The escalating demand for low-carbon solutions underscores Poland's significance as a promising market for Finnish companies in the long term. The adoption of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles and the EU Taxonomy since 2022 have propelled numerous market players toward sustainability objectives, thereby amplifying the need for low-carbon investments. Notably, real estate developers and architects exhibit keen interest in embracing innovative, eco-friendly solutions. The concentration of sustainable projects related to low-carbon developments in major Polish cities, exemplified by Krakow, further accentuates the city's importance in this context.

Three trends propelling the Polish construction sector towards low-carbon innovation:

  • Willingness to leverage the EU market potential requires Polish firms to embrace rigorous green standards.
  • Public funding and Polish cities' green strategies prioritize thermal modernization and energy efficiency.
  • Rising environmental targets for residential and public utility investments boost demand for low-carbon materials.
