Policy Update – Europe Regional Network

2013. február 12., WorldGBC News 4183

The Europe Regional Network’s Policy Update bringing you news of the latest developments in European green building and related policy.

New Year resolutions

President Barroso’s speech at the end of year Brussels Sustainable Development Summit was both a recognition of the disappointing outcomes of Rio+20 and Doha and a signal of renewed resolve for the year ahead. 2013 looks set to be a promising year for sustainable building policy, and the Europe Regional Network is looking forward to helping drive the agenda forwards.

Irish Presidency of the EU begins

Ireland’s EU Presidency term has now begun. The Presidency’s key priorities in the energy field include prioritising the Connecting Europe Facility, and advancing legislation regarding sustainability criteria for biomass, which is likely to impact fuel supply agreements. In the environment field, key priorities include working to finalise agreement on the 7th Environmental Action Programme (see article below), supporting development of a new EU strategy on Climate Change, and progressing legislation on F-Gases and Environmental Impact Assessments (see Europe Regional Network
November 2012 Policy Update).
