Renovation Wave: CoR and EU Commission launch cooperation to boost building overhaul
The European Committee of the Regions and the European Commission launched today a cooperation to accelerate the overhaul and decarbonisation of EU building stock. The potential for new jobs, energy savings and the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions makes the EU's building "Renovation Wave" a key driver to build a robust and sustainable recovery from COVID-19. The partnership aims to support local and regional governments with renewing their building stock. The COVID-19 health crisis has amplified the need to improve living conditions within our buildings and to eradicate energy poverty.
