Construction

Buildings are responsible for about 40% of the EU’s energy consumption, and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions from energy. With only 1% of buildings undergoing energy efficient renovation every year, action is crucial in making Europe climate neutral by 2050.

In this new circular approach and way of thinking, action will focus on resource-intensive sectors, and that includes construction and real estate. Here, the reuse of recycled materials and the digitalisation or machinery and processor play an elemental role.

Renovating public and private buildings to make them more energy efficient and reduce emissions must be part of the plan. On a supranational level, construction products regulations will be reviewed regarding the needs of the circular economy, so they can lead to an increased digitalisation and climate-proofing of building stock.
