What does the transition towards lowcarbon building stock mean for Europe?   European building stock is responsible for around a third of CO2 emissions, and the EU has set a target of 20 % reduction by 2020 and 60 % by 2030, from a 1990 baseline.

These are not separated by expertise or field, so our approach to overcoming climate-related challenges can’t be siloed either.
