Building a Greener Future: European Parliament's Bold Move to Slash Energy Consumption and Emissions

Last week, the European Parliament passed the updated Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, signalling a crucial step towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption within the EU's building sector. The new law sets ambitious targets to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, with a focus on renovating the least energy-efficient buildings and enhancing information sharing on energy performance.

Kadri Simson, the European Commissioner overseeing Energy, expressed gratitude to Irish MEP Ciarán Cuffe, who served as the Lead Rapporteur for the Directive. Their collaborative efforts over the past two years have been instrumental in shaping this legislation.

Dublin Chamber is actively engaged in the ENACT project, which aims to empower SMEs to retrofit their commercial properties. Through this initiative, various solutions tailored to the Irish market are explored, with case studies developed in partnership with our project ally, SCSI.
