In the Renovation Wave action plan released in October, the European Commission declared its ambition to at least double renovation rates and ensure that 35 million buildings across Europe are renovated by 2030.
The plan unveiled a promising range of regulatory, financial and structural measures to accelerate European renovation. This will be crucial to reducing the environmental impact of buildings, which currently account for 36% of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions in the EU.
In this World Green Building Council webinar, with a lineup of built environment and policy experts, we will discuss what action must be taken for the Renovation Wave to be successful and fulfil its ambition. We will also look at how the local, data-based approach of Build Upon2, which is working with 8 pilot cities across Europe to measure the diverse benefits of building renovation on a local level, can be a key tool to deliver the Wave on the ground.
