WGIN: How Green Roofs Can Help Cut Emissions from Buildings, Save Energy and Benefit Householders | Webinar

October 19, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm CEST

Join WGIN event at the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2021

The Renovation Wave strategy adopted by the European Commission in October 2020 requires the EU building stock to reduce its emissions by 60% and its final energy consumption by 14% by 2030. Urban green infrastructure is listed among the seven key principles for building renovation, while in the conclusions the Commission outlines its vision to turn the building stock “from a carbon source into a carbon sink”.

This webinar, part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week Extended Programme, will provide insights on the benefits of green infrastructure in terms of energy efficiency, water management, and citizens’ wellbeing and discuss their role in the decarbonisation of the EU building stock.

The session will also address the upcoming revision of related EU policies, starting from the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), and assess the opportunity of integrating green infrastructure in the EU legislative framework.
