The objective of the H2020 Societal Challenge 5 'Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials' is to achieve a resource – and water – efficient and climate change resilient economy and society, the protection and sustainable management of natural resources and ecosystems, and a sustainable supply and use of raw materials.


Achieving energetic efficiency and sustainability is a social challenge that involves government entities, regulators, researchers, investors, energy and environmental sustainability companies and end users.


The European framework program, Horizon 2020's Environment programs allocates funding for solutions to this specific challenge. These funds aim to create a holistic platform to be used by the various entities, to support and promote sustainability and green energy solutions.
