Read our open letter to EU policymakers here.

A coalition of stakeholders across Europe participating in the #BuildingLife project have come together to call on the European Commission to implement transformative policies that will lead to a fully decarbonised and circular built environment in Europe. 

This coalition represents over 4,500 organisations across the real estate and construction sector value chain who are calling on the European Commission to:

  • Recognise the full potential of the building sector in delivering a climate neutral Europe.
  • Ensure that the review of key legislative files, including the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), support a Whole Life Carbon (WLC) approach in addition to accelerating renovation, and greater accountability for achieved performance.
  • Recognise the potential of Level(s) to deliver a harmonised implementation of WLC policy, building circularity and adaptability analysis.
  • Deliver the EU Strategy for a Sustainable Built Environment to ensure coherence across policies and coordinate the transition to a sustainable built environment in the EU.
  • Work with the committed network of #BuildingLife stakeholders to develop and deliver these transformative policies.
