Climate change is the EU's top priority according to the European Commission and member states are committed to cutting down on CO2 emissions to meet the Kyoto Protocol targets. Despite all the efforts, member states keep on wasting a significant part of their energy due to inefficiency and buildings are responsible for 40 percent of Europe's total carbon-dioxide emissions.

On this topic Frost & Sullivan, a global growth consulting company, will host an exclusive interactive briefing on March 14, 2007, at 3 p.m. GMT to provide manufacturers of building technology products, energy management service providers and other industry participants with an overview of the concept of green buildings. Highlights of the briefing include: The EU's standpoint on energy efficiency, the concept of green buildings in Europe compared to the U.S. and the implementation of EPBD at national level with country case studies with a focus on current developments and comparisons.

"Even though many energy efficiency measures are cost effective with a relatively short payback time, they are often not undertaken due to financial restraints," observes Research Analyst Reka Szanto. "If more stringent standards are applied to new buildings and renovations, the EU will achieve a significant cut in greenhouse gas emissions. Unfortunately, any effort is in vain if it is not coupled with a change in consumer behavior."
