Anca Bieru, Membership & Public Affairs Director for the RoGBC, met yesterday in Brussels with Adriana Ticau, Member of the European Parliament (MEP), to lobby for the position of the RoGBC regarding the new Directive for Energy Performance in Buildings (EPBD).

Representatives of the Council and WWF Danube-Carpathian Programme Romania have written a position paper addressed to the MEP Adriana Ticau, with the purpose of encouraging the progressive position of the European Parliament in the Trialogue Negotiations starting this month to obtain an agreement on the recast of EPBD.

The message of the position paper is one supporting the adoption of an “ambitious recast of the Directive, as it resulted from the European Parliament vote” and the idea of maintaining an inter-institutional negotiation.

The organizations signing the paper positioned that “a fast agreement should not be reached to the detriment of the content.” Also, the two parties agree that “priority should be given to adopting an ambitious EPBD that contributes to savings of more than 5% of the total EU CO2 emissions and 6% of EU final energy use.”

The text of the position paper is available for reading here.
