Real Estate – The Times they are a Changin

In case you missed it, Europe is at war with carbon to save our planet.  Some of the world’s toughest environmental targets are becoming a reality in the way we live our lives and conduct our business.  Europe has committed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 40% of 1990 levels by 2030.  But the need for speed is gathering pace. Buildings are firmly on the legislative agenda.  The built environment is responsible for 40% of total energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions in the EU. 75% of buildings are energy-inefficient.  Not the best statistics considering the context.

In this snapshot we take a look at what the real estate sector has to expect from the EU energy efficiency legislation.
