Consultation Response: Roadmap for the reduction of whole life carbon emissions of buildings in the EU

Bellona welcomes the Commission’s initiative to develop a roadmap for reducing whole life carbon (WLC) emissions in buildings, as part of the Renovation Wave.

With the status of current EU policies, Bellona believes that developing complementary policy is needed. There is still a gap between what the current EU policies can achieve in terms of environmental impact of buildings and construction products, and the decarbonisation goals of the EU. Even considering the advancements that the revision of relevant policies (CPR, ESPR, EPBD) could bring, as things stand now they give no guarantees that whole life carbon will be tackled to the sufficient extent and at the needed pace.
