Abstract: Energy efficiency plays a key role in European energy policies. It improves the security of energy supply, strengthens the competitiveness of European businesses and contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions in order to achieve the EU 2020 target. The building sector accounts for more than 40% of the final energy demand in Europe. One third of this demand can be attributed to non-residential buildings, such as offices, factories, schools, hospitals or hotels. At the same time, some of the largest potentials for energy savings can be exploited by e.g. improving heating and cooling systems of buildings as well as by optimising the building envelope. A strong effort is therefore needed by all Europeans, particularly by private and public organisations, to realise this substantial potential for energy savings. GreenBuilding is a voluntary programme which was initiated by the European Commission in 2005. The programme intends to raise awareness and trigger additional investments in energy efficiency and renewable energies among owners of non-residential buildings and to give advice and public recognition to those, who are ready to implement ambitious measures in their buildings, resulting in substantial energy savings. These savings not only contribute to the European fight against climate change, but make also good business sense as it will reduce energy costs. On the following pages, you could find information on the GreenBuilding Programme. I hope you could consider to become a GreenBuilding Partner, showing your commitment to contribute to the mitigation of climate change. The brochure will inform you about what it takes and whom to contact.
