New Covenant of Mayors video case study looks at Vienna's green social housing policy

In Vienna, creating affordable living spaces that meet architectural and environmental standards is a top priority for the local administration.

The Covenant of Mayors recently visited the Austrian capital to produce a video about its green social housing policy.

Michael Ludwig, councillor for housing, said: “Green housing should be reflected in all forms of living and not become a luxury. That is why we have been promoting low-energy standards in subsidised houses for over ten years“.
