CRREM in the final EU Taxonomy report

CRREM has been mentioned in the annexes of the final EU Taxonomy report. The EU report has been developed by the Technical Expert Group (TEG). Here you can read the text:

“The Sustainable Finance Platform should develop appropriate criteria and thresholds to address carbon emissions arising from unregulated energy use (i.e. plug-in electric loads) in buildings, considering different building typologies. Emissions due to unregulated energy use are not currently covered by the criteria established in this report, but these emissions can represent a significant share of the operational impact of buildings, especially from specific non-residential typologies. To shorten the process and avoid the duplication of efforts, these thresholds could be developed on the basis of the decarbonisation trajectories identified in the research project Carbon Risk Real Estate Monitor (CRREM), funded by Horizon 2020.”
