Germany's building stock shall be nearly climate-neutral by 2050. To achieve this, the rate of refurbishment has to be significantly increased since the average annual refurbishment rate of the entire building stock is currently less than one per cent. The European Union's energy efficiency directive calls for three per cent.

PlasticsEurope welcomes the European Commission’s proposals for a revision of the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD) and the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) which maintain the current framework of Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) for all new buildings and establish a long term vision for the existing building stock. PlasticsEurope however stated that much more focus and priority should be placed on minimising energy consumption of existing buildings as it will not only reduce energy poverty in Europe but create jobs and have environmental benefits.
