IIGCC Letter on EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD)

05.12.22

Ahead of the European Parliament setting its position on the recast Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) in January 2023, IIGCC sent a letter to key Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) on December 2nd 2022 emphasising our strong support for an ambitious outcome. It was also sent in parallel to the other EU Institutions.

Investors will be critical for the meeting the objectives of the recast EPBD; IIGCC emphasises the need for strong signals to accelerate private sector investment in buildings’ energy efficiency, finance deep retrofits, and support the acceleration of transition finance flows in line with the EU’s sustainable finance agenda. The letter contains several specific points that IIGCC wishes to see reflected in the EPBD in order to achieve this.

IIGCC will continue to liaise with MEP’s on the EPBD to represent the investor perspective

The open letter builds upon our letters sent earlier this year to Member State Leaders and Ministers and Commission Executive Vice President Timmermans on the wider Fit for 55 package.
