BETTER BUILDINGS FOR A BETTER FUTURE

Eurima has published its action plan for a sustainable building stock by 2050. Buildings are critical to our health and well-being. Most of us spend up to 90 percent of the day in the office, at school, in hospitals, shops and at home. The way we build and use our buildings directly impacts the quality and sustainability of our living environment.

The action plan, together with an Arcadis study on the future of the built environment, shows that no overall climate, energy, circular-economy or health objective will be achievable without tapping the potential of Europe’s buildings.

Eurima focuses in the action plan on two key elements that make it possible to deliver all four societal objectives (i) Make renovation happen and (ii) Build and renovate sustainably. Specific actions are proposed, such as creating building renovation passports, securing the necessary funds for renovation, and making sustainability part of future building legislation.

Eurima calls for a coordinated approach in policy making related to the built environment. Policies affecting one of the most important sectors of the EU economy, the building and construction sector, should be coordinated by one European Commission Vice-President overseeing the work of all relevant departments.

Eurima looks forward to further exchange with different stakeholders at the European level to translate this action plan into the upcoming legal framework.
