Buildings are responsible for approximately 40% of EU energy consumption and 36% of the greenhouse gas emissions. Buildings are therefore the single largest energy consumer in Europe.
At present, about 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old and almost 75% of the building stock is energy inefficient. At the same time, only about 1% of the building stock is renovated each year. Renovation of existing buildings can lead to significant energy savings, as it could reduce the EU’s total energy consumption by 5-6% and lower CO2 emissions by about 5%.
How can we make this industry more sustainable?
Join our online event if you would like to find out how innovative economically viable, flexible and modular solutions able to process high amounts of CDW waste and reaching at the same time a high performance in terms of energy-efficiency and environmental and economic impact. You will get valuable insights into developments in the building sector that go beyond state-of-the-art.

The Matching Events provide a platform for exchange across ACT Communities of Practice (CoPs) and other stakeholders (ERA level players) on the ERA priorities “decision-making, gender dimension and careers” and brings together different people interested in and working on similar topics and towards similar goals.
Over three weeks in October we will be hosting six sessions - two per topic - dedicated to three ERA priorities.
Topics to be discussed: see summary
To end the month, there will be a joint (more casual and voluntary) session on October 29th, (time tbd). Everyone is invited to join with a drink, reflect on the events, connect with other participants and to have a nice evening.
