About

BUILD UPON2 is a project led by a group of GBCs in WorldGBC’s Europe network in partnership with Climate Alliance and BPIE. It is giving cities across Europe the tools to lead the charge towards net zero carbon by 2050 by unlocking the huge potential of their existing buildings. The project is developing an impact framework that enables cities to measure the diverse benefits of renovation projects across environmental, social and economic factors, and to identify which of these can be scaled up to the regional and national level.

The Project

We aim to strengthen implementation of the renovation strategies required by EU law. The project is funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 programme and coordinated by GBC España.
