Within the 2030 climate and energy framework, the European Union (EU) has committed to several key targets for 2021-2030. The overall target for 2030 is to cut the energy system greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 40% as compared to the 1990 levels. Furthermore, the Renewable Energy Directive requires a binding minimum share of 32% of renewable energy for final energy use as EU-average. The Energy Efficiency Directive sets an indicative target of at least 32.5% improvement in energy efficiency by 2030 at EU level versus the projections.

At today's renovation rate of around 1% of buildings per year, a timely transition of the EU building sector towards climate-neutral levels by 2050 cannot be ensured. To accelerate energy efficiency investments in this area, the European Commission has intensified its efforts in recent years, with specific calls to strengthen the existing financial framework, increase funding levels, diversify types of financial models and explore new supporting mechanisms.

As a high-level group of CEOs, academics and politicians gathered in Brussels last week to discuss the future of the glass industry, they recognised how glass is a material which is used everywhere, from smartphones to cars, from ovens to buildings. The reason glass is everywhere is because as a transparent material, it serves a unique function for which mankind has found no substitute. This could make the sector a low-hanging fruit in lowering Europe’s emissions.

European leaders agreed in December that Europe would adopt a net-zero emission target for 2050 which would be put into legislation in March of this year. The European Commission issued a list of initiatives to respond to the ambitious goal of reaching carbon neutrality for all. This includes a "renovation wave" whose details will be clarified at the end of 2020.
