At today's renovation rate of around 1% of buildings per year, a timely transition of the EU building sector towards climate-neutral levels by 2050 cannot be ensured. To accelerate energy efficiency investments in this area, the European Commission has intensified its efforts in recent years, with specific calls to strengthen the existing financial framework, increase funding levels, diversify types of financial models and explore new supporting mechanisms.

The European Union is the first to become carbon neutral by 2050 in the world. The European Green Deal's Investment Plan - the Sustainable Europe Investment Plan - will mobilise public investments and unlock public funds through EU financial instruments which will lead to at least €1 trillion of investments.   Complementing other initiatives announced under the Green Deal, the European Green Deal Investment Plan is based on three dimensions:

The production and use of energy across economic sectors account for more than 75% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. Energy efficiency (EE) must be prioritised. If we all want to go towards electrification, digitalisation and all the necessary elements that a successful and just transition entails, we need to cut radically our energy demand, by half by 2050 in comparison to 2005, says the Commission.

As a high-level group of CEOs, academics and politicians gathered in Brussels last week to discuss the future of the glass industry, they recognised how glass is a material which is used everywhere, from smartphones to cars, from ovens to buildings. The reason glass is everywhere is because as a transparent material, it serves a unique function for which mankind has found no substitute. This could make the sector a low-hanging fruit in lowering Europe’s emissions.

European leaders agreed in December that Europe would adopt a net-zero emission target for 2050 which would be put into legislation in March of this year. The European Commission issued a list of initiatives to respond to the ambitious goal of reaching carbon neutrality for all. This includes a "renovation wave" whose details will be clarified at the end of 2020.

The buildings and construction sector accounted for 36% of final energy use and 39% of energy and process-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in 2018, 11% of which resulted from manufacturing building materials and products such as steel, cement and glass. This year’s Global Status Report provides an update on drivers of CO2 emissions and energy demand globally since 2017, along with examples of policies, technologies and investments that support low-carbon building stocks.
