Campaigning and awareness raising

Building on its climate change mitigation policies and greenhouse gas emissions reductions over recent decades, the EU aims to become the world's first climate-neutral economy. Achieving climate neutrality will help Europe contribute to the Paris Agreement objectives of limiting global temperature increase to well below 2˚ C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5˚ C, but will require substantial change across Europe.

Deep disparities define today’s energy world. The dissonance between well-supplied oil markets and growing geopolitical tensions and uncertainties. The gap between the ever-higher amounts of greenhouse gas emissions being produced and the insufficiency of stated policies to curb those emissions in line with international climate targets. The gap between the promise of energy for all and the lack of electricity access for 850 million people around the world.

According to Eurostat 2017, 42% of the European population currently live in flats (condominiums, multi-owned properties, tenements, social housing, etc.). Retrofitting condominiums (tenements and flatted buildings) is highly strategic for local authorities, as a large number of private owners can be reached at the same time. Once the retrofitting is done, co-owners benefit from comfortable homes as well as from financial and carbon savings.   Fragmented ownership
