Yesterday, Glass for Europe was in France to talk about the European Union climate policies at the CEKAL conference dedicated to certified glazing, climate issues, circular economy and recycling. CEKAL is a quality certification for insulating, laminated and tempered glazing.
Bertrand Cazes, Secretary General of Glass for Europe, presented the EU climate commitments towards 2030 and 2050 and the numerous pieces of legislation included in the “fitfor55” package currently under discussion. The taxonomy, the Carbon Boarder Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM), the energy efficiency policies and the role of high-performance glazing in the review of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) and the decarbonization goals for the industry were among the several topics discussed during the meeting. The audience, which included several UDTVP member companies and the most influential actors of the building glass value-chain of France, was very interested by the impact of the EU climate policies on glazing professionals activities.
