Brussels 15 February 2017 - CEMBUREAU has taken note of the vote that took place in the European Parliament today, welcoming its decision not to deliberately discriminate between sectors and to apply a fact-based approach to policymaking.
On 6 October 2016, CEMBUREAU responded to a European Commission consultation on a common framework of core indicators for the environmental performance of buildings. In its response, CEMBUREAU indicated that it would not be appropriate to narrow the life cycle stage boundaries, nor the building component scope, as laid out in existing standards. Furthermore, in order to provide accurate tracking information, the indicators should cover performance both at design and post-occupation stages.
On 26 January, The European Environment Agency (EEA) published its four-yearly report, warning that the continent is facing more extreme weather, such as more frequent and more intense heat waves, flooding, droughts and storms due to climate change.
