“We are also on track to cut the embodied carbon of our products by 15% by 2025 following a reduction of 8.2% in our absolute carbon emissions from 2021 to 2022.”
Importance of energy efficient buildings
"Our Public Affairs teams around the world campaigned to put building energy efficiency at the heart of policymakers’ agendas throughout 2023 and we saw some important developments", said Dominique.
“We supported two studies that demonstrated how renovation could cut Europe’s energy demand by 44% and save Europe €3.5 trillion in energy costs over 20 years."
“We launched a new tool to demonstrate how our solutions pay back their carbon footprint in just 95 days. In addition, putting theory into practice, we unveiled a 63-building retrofit of social homes in Belgium."
“This project demonstrates the reality of how quality renovation improves lives, drives decarbonisation and generates energy savings."
“Overall, we still have a great deal of work to do. However, as this report reminds us, shaping a sustainable company and an energy efficient built environment is a journey of continuous improvement.”
