Energy Performance of Buildings Directive: why it matters for a green tomorrow.

The Revision of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive has officially launched its consultation. Let’s kick-start #deeprenovation in a #sustainable way! Why should you #care? 🌆 Almost 75% of the #EU’s #building stock is #inefficient according to current building standards, and 85-95% of the buildings that exist today will still be standing in 2050. 💶 Inefficient buildings are often synonymous with #energy#poverty, which is a major […]

Deep renovation and societal health go hand in hand

Energy poverty and indoor air pollution, to name but two grave realities many European citizens face right now, are the proverbial elephant in the room in dire need to be addressed. With more than 2/3 of the time being spent at home already before the pandemic, it is of vital importance to connect the dots between […]

Promise made, promise kept
