THE CHALLENGE: To meet the COP26 climate agreement targets, solving the building renovation challenge is key
THE PROBLEM: Construction companies and real estate developers have not been sufficiently incentivised to prepare for the after-sales, renovation and end-of-life phases of buildings
THE OPPORTUNITY: Digitalisation, pre-fabricated systems, and off-site and industrialised assembly can significantly bring down renovation costs

The EU TAXONOMY FOR SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS drives models that leverage on:
