EEA Building Renovation

Potential Sustainable Renovation Activities

This briefing examines potential renovation activities that could improve the sustainability of existing buildings and the implications for embedded greenhouse gas emissions and resource use.

A briefing from the EEA which quantitatively explores the potential to mitigate climate change by implementing ‘circular renovation’ actions on the EU’s existing building stock until 2050. The report models various circular strategies, including retrofit, pre-fabrication, bio-based materials and NBS, to illustrate the carbon emissions each strategy can offset individually and as a collective.
