Position paper

Energy efficient construction and renovation contribute to people’s well-being and productivity, and help tackling today’s challenges: to create local jobs, contribute to reducing energy poverty and to the fight against climate change.

The revision of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) is the opportunity to continue and improve the legal framework for the promotion of energy efficient buildings, considering the learnings from the last years.


Cerame-Unie welcomes the initiative of the European Commission to revise the EPBD according to the new ambitions of the EU Green Deal, the Climate Target Plan 2030 and the Renovation Wave Strategy and hereby contributes with the perspective of the European ceramic industry for the ongoing impact assessment.
