The Netherlands faces an enormous climate-change challenge. To reach a CO2-reduction of 49% in 2030, 1.5 million houses need to be made more sustainable. This means at least 400 houses a day will need to be transformed to meet modern sustainability standards. However, transforming your house is a complex, costly and risky matter for private homeowners. To accelerate the transformation of the housing market, a.s.r. launches the ‘’VerduurSamen’’ initiative. A one-stop-shop solution for most practical concerns, which unburdens private homeowners in making their house more sustainable, and guarantees the quality and effectiveness of the sustainability measures.

VerduurSamen kickstarts this transformation by creating a one-stop-shop focusing on three components:

Collectivity: VerduurSamen will create a sustainability plan, exploring the most effective measures, for a collective of homeowners with homogeneous houses. Through economies of scale, in both the scope of the project and in purchasing materials and services, costs will be reduced.

Unburdening: Homeowners will be unburdened as VerduurSamen takes responsibility for researching the most effective method of financing. We’ll assist in applying for subsidies/grants or a loan from the ‘’Nationaal Bespaarfonds’’. Additionally, we’ll ensure measures will be performed by an expert partner.

Certainty: VerduurSamen guarantees homeowners of the quality and effectiveness of the sustainability measures. This guarantee ensures homeowners can make a conscious financial decision to invest in a more sustainable home.
