The EC estimates that about 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old, and almost 75% of the building stock is energy inefficient.
At the same time, only 0.4-1.2% of the building stock renovated each year (depending on the country) .

The document starts with a brief section listing the key outcomes of the Carbon Risk Real Estate Monitor (H2020 CRREM project).
Sections A provides an introduction to the CRREM project and background information on ‘stranding risk’. Section B describes global and EU policies on climate change mitigation as well as international standards on the assessment of greenhouse gases.

The EIP-SCC has launched a guidance package to help towns and cities move towards a sustainable future. The toolbox is the fruit of many European projects, including REMOURBAN.
In early May the Committee of Regions held a high-level event to launch the Smart city Guidance Package, a roadmap for integrated planning and implementation for Smart City projects.

Getting on track to limit global temperature increase to 1.5°C, as was agreed in Paris back in 2015, would not just be good for our climate, but first and foremost for all citizens.
What changes to the European policy framework and new initiatives could be prepared and implemented in the coming years?
This paper on the zero carbon and circular challenge in the built environment puts forward several policy recommendations.

The topic of manipulated testing results, or “circumvention” is currently exposed to the highest attention of the public and media, not only for the emission of cars (“dieselgate”) but also with regard to other EU legislation. For this reason the project “ANTICSS – Anti-Circumvention of Standards for better market Surveillance” has been funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

The EU is funding various projects on issues around energy efficiency and building renovation. Yet, while similar projects address the same challenges, there is little or no information exchange and collaboration between them. Additionally, the question remains of how much feedback these projects provide to policy makers and thus how they effectively support reaching EU 2030 targets and the long-term objective of decarbonising the building stock by 2050.
