BUILD UPON - Recommendations for National Renovation Strategies

Wednesday 26th April 2017

Through the WorldGBC BUILD UPON project, 13 Green Building Councils in Europe played a leading role in helping national governments to create strong and robust ‘national renovation strategies’ that will see their countries unlock the energy saving potential in their buildings.

These recommendations are compiled in this publication. The recommendations are actions for how their countries can deliver the level of ambition needed on existing buildings that will meet the Paris Agreement. They were developed by the 13 Green Building Councils involved in BUILD UPON, through the project’s major collaborative process involving nearly 2,000 key organisations at 100 events across Europe.

BUILD UPON is coordinated by the World Green Building Council and Green Building Council España, and is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 project.
