Energy

Energy renovation and future buildings are part of the solution to the world’s climate and energy challenges. 

With the Paris Agreement, adopted by 195 countries at the COP21 conference in Paris in December 2015, the world committed itself to containing climate change. As buildings account for almost 40% of energy used and 37% of carbon emissions in Europe, a greater focus on energy savings in buildings could play a pivotal role in reducing the impact of modern living. Thus, the time is right for a paradigm shift in the way we design and organise the buildings we live, work and play in.

Energy efficiency in buildings represents a huge, untapped potential, not only in terms of using the world’s resources in a smarter way, but also in terms of boosting economic activity, growth and jobs

Energy performance

Renovation

90%

of today’s buildings will still be in use in 2050

75%

of existing buildings are not energy efficient

40%

of Europe’s energy is used in buildings

Another major benefit of smarter energy use in buildings is the opportunity to reshape the buildings we spend almost 90% of our time in, so that they nourish our health and well-being
