The Ecocasa Program supports the construction of 27,000 efficient homes that will help reduce emissions of greenhouse gases in Mexico, while improving the quality of life of the low-income families who live in these houses. The program also provides financial incentives and technical assistance to housing developers to achieve higher levels of energy efficiency, and thus contribute to transform the housing sector in line with the country’s objectives on climate change.

The ecocasas incorporate technologies that reduce greenhouse gases emissions by at least 20 per cent compared to conventional homes. These technologies include insulation in ceilings and walls, the use of reflective paint, efficient gas heaters, efficient refrigerators or energy-saving windows. The activity intends to reduce about one million tonnes of CO2 equivalent in the first seven years.
