Dear friends and colleagues,
The economic growth strategies described in the European Green Deal will be an important element of the post-crisis recovery programme. In this context, the renovation wave should play an important role. BPIE developed a set of recommendations for all stakeholders which could help trigger a renovation wave and to achieve climate-neutrality for Europe’s building stock by 2050: An Action Plan for the Renovation Wave: Collectively achieving sustainable buildings in Europe (click to read).
Launching the renovation wave will require a holistic, cross-sectoral approach, from policy makers to industry players, financial institutions and individual home and building owners.
This paper therefore lays out an evidence-based strategy for the buildings sector with actionable guidelines specific to each group along the value chain. Our aim is to support the transition to climate-neutrality, while pulling Europeans out of energy poverty, and growing the green economy.
We hope you will enjoy the reading, and please don’t hesitate to contact us with your questions.
