Renovation at the heart of recovery plans
COVID-19 is the defining global health crisis of our time and has brought with it a simultaneous economic crisis. All of this amplifies the ever-intensifying climate crisis that isn’t going away. In response, the European Commission is actively pushing energy efficiency renovation to be at the heart of its economic recovery plans. But think about it: renovating to help local economies recover makes sense. Compared to other EU industries, construction is labour-intensive and locally-based. Around 95 percent of construction
companies employ 10 or fewer people, and craftsmen generate two-thirds of their revenue locally, within a 50-km radius of their business. So your home improvement project boosts an industry in need – and instantly supports craftsmen in the local community.
