Focusing on how a building operates and the carbon emissions it generates, as well as on its environmental performance, has become a crucial issue that real estate professionals, investors, owners and occupiers need to face head-on.
When, in December 2021, the European Union (EU) revised the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), it stated that "Buildings are one of the largest sources of energy consumption in Europe. Boosting their energy efficiency would cut emissions, tackle energy poverty, reduce people's vulnerability to energy prices and support the economic recovery and job creation."
By implementing this Directive, the EU aims to ensure that new buildings will be zero-emission by 2050, taking into account the entire life cycle of a building.
