It's no wonder energy efficiency is a popular subject in the construction and renovation sector. More and more homeowners are realising that they can make substantial savings in the long term by making energy-efficient improvements to their homes. But first of all there has to be an investment, of course. Afraid the initial investment will take too large a chunk of your budget? A green energy loan* is the solution. Discover all the benefits.
Eco-friendly construction and improvements: affordable
The more extensive energy-efficient improvements you make, the bigger the budget you need to allow. Because most home improvers don't have a large sum of money set aside – often you've just bought a house and already invested every cent of your savings in it – we've created the KBC Green Energy Loan. A great way to spread the cost of carrying out your planned improvements.
Green investments are good for the environment and for the value of your home. Eco-friendly improvements also earn you a pat on the back:

- Saving energy means saving on your energy bills – year after year
