Energy efficiency, nearly zero-energy building, air tightness, and renewable energy – these concepts have become increasingly common in the daily vocabulary of the builders. Is the Wolf Group as a producer and reseller of building materials ready for the imminent changes in the building market?
Global reports and studies suggest that human activities have contributed to climate warming for as much as hundreds of years. The European Union and international climate policies are therefore aimed at alleviating climate change and adapting to its impact. To decrease anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, the European Union has set the ambitious goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80–95% by 2050 compared to 1990. Every EU country has to contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020 and 40% by 2030.
What does this all have to do with the energy performance of buildings?
