German industry slams omission of thermal building insulation from environment ministry’s budget
German industry has sharply criticised that support for thermal building insulation is not included in the environment ministry’s current budget. “By omitting this instrument, the government is negligent. If building renovations are not sped up, the 2030 climate targets for the building sector will be missed by almost 30 percent, or 20 million tonnes of CO2,” said Holger Lösch, deputy chief executive at the Federation of German Industries (BDI).
