The Energy Efficient Mortgages NL Hub (EEM NL Hub) is an initiative from a diverse group of stakeholders in the Dutch residential housing and mortgage market such as lenders, investors, service providers and other institutions. The 20 members of the EEM NL Hub have committed to supporting and promoting the acceleration and adaptation of energy efficient housing in the Netherlands by interpreting the EU regulations for sustainable financing and energy efficient mortgages in specific. The EEM NL Hub further aims to develop and maintain a Dutch framework for energy efficient mortgages that facilitates the translation and application of European regulation into the Dutch mortgage and property market.
NautaDutilh’s Sustainable Business & Climate Change Team believes it is important to share its extensive knowledge and cross-sector experience. Therefore, it was only natural for the team to join and to contribute to the Hub. As an affiliated member of the Hub, we will further discuss and discover scalable solutions that enhance insights and broader adaptation of Energy Efficient Mortgages.
Reinier Dommerholt, member of our SB&CC team, senior associate Banking Finance: “We are convinced that by working together with all parties involved, we can accelerate the development of sustainable investments in energy-efficient mortgage loans. We therefore consider it important to be able to contribute from our legal expertise to innovative solutions for a more sustainable mortgage market."
Please feel free to contact our SB&CC Team, if you have any questions. The team’s areas of expertise include ESG risks and opportunities, climate change litigation, sustainable finance, and business human rights law.
