How Europe will address greenhouse emissions…with eco-friendly buildings


As the world continues to seek ways of curbing carbon emissions, Europe is turning to the construction of eco-friendly buildings.

Consequently, the European Commission plans to double the EU’s annual rate of energy-related building renovations, which is currently just 1%, upgrading 35 million buildings by 2030.

Available data shows that a third of EU carbon dioxide emissions come from buildings.

Central to the EU plan will be binding minimum energy performance standards for all existing buildings in Europe.
