We are committed to creating inclusive neighbourhoods

Mission

Ekubirojs rethinks cities. We advocate for evidence based-policy and develop projects that connect people, drive local economies, and lower CO2 emissions.

As an NGO, we are committed to rejuvenate urban infrastructure and its social fabric. Our One-Stop-Shop aims to impact where it really matters – our homes – delivering long-term Guaranteed Safety, Health and Comfort.

A new approach is needed that brings all stakeholders together. We offer a design approach that considers the wellbeing of our planet as a whole while maximizing stakeholder engagement to deliver results to our communities.

Background

We are located in Latvia, but we operate all over Europe by participating in EU-funded projects and by offering our consulting and facilitation services across the EU.

In Latvia, there are over 50 million sq. meters of residential buildings. Many of these buildings were built during the Soviet Era and are rapidly deteriorating, representing a danger for their residents and the wider community.

A deteriorating building means:

Negative health, safety, comfort impacts on residents

Higher energy bills and higher building maintenance costs

Exorbitant amount of released CO2 emissions

In Europe, we are facing a social and environmental dilemma of the grandest scale

As we continue to spend more and more time in urban centers, we live in buildings that are actually detrimental to our physical and mental health, while our activities and consumption of energy in these buildings only add to increased CO2 emissions, impacting our environment. In Latvia, there are over 50 million sq. meters of residential buildings. Many of these buildings were built during the Soviet Era and are rapidly deteriorating, representing a danger for their residents and the wider community.

Ekubirojs was established in 2012 to promote Energy Efficiency and green investment in the Baltics and eastern Europe, leveraging the tremendous energy saving opportunities in Soviet Era buildings. Ever since, we have been working with the public and private sector as well as citizens, and our scope has expanded with each new partnership.

To tackle this European-wide issue of societal and environmental breakdown, we facilitate dEEp renovation of buildings (core renovation + energy efficiency refurbishment). Renovating our European building stock by adhering to both health and environmental guidelines will meet residents’ needs as well as reduce CO2 emissions on a large scale. To reach both goals, we promote and facilitate the dEEp renovation process of buildings paid back through energy savings. This represents an affordable solution for building renovations with guaranteed results. Through this process, we are able to offer a reduced total carbon footprint of the building and by creating/developing, we also reduce Latvia’s carbon footprint.
