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?
