dc.description.abstractThis briefing paper discusses potential amendments to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive which are being put forward by the EEB (who represent 180 member organisations in 38 countries with in excess of 30 million members). The EEB are concerned to ensure the efficacy of the Directive and its compliance with international law as it is a vital component in the fight against climate change, with buildings being responsible for more than 36% of GHG emissions, and 40% of energy consumption. It is important this directive is rendered highly effective to ensure we meet our Paris Agreement obligations and to ensure compliance with the ESR. The proposed amendments are necessary in order to fulfil the EU's obligations under international law, specifically the Aarhus Convention, to ensure the coherence and cohesion of EU law and to ensure that the substantive measures contained in the directive will be effective.en_US
