This project which was launched in March 2015 by the Green Building Council (GBC) will help governments create strategies to radically reduce energy use from Europe’s building stock.


The BUILD UPON initiative:

BUILD UPON aims to build a community: a place for us to come together. Our mission is to work toegether to co-create ambitious national strategies to
improve our existing buildings.

Our specific interest in BUILD UPON is lowering the amount of energy used by our buildings; to make them perform better environmentally and cost less
to run.

To create a built environment that ensures a high quality of life for all European citizens will require a renovation revolution – to help our buildings
become the best they can be for the people and the communities they serve.
