Mr. Noll, energy prices are continuing to rise. This is one reason why the topic of energy efficiency is becoming more important for private households, property owners and companies like Xella. A survey commissioned by DENEFF revealed that German citizens would like politicians to take a much more determined approach to climate protection in the building sector. What would DENEFF like to see?
We share this view. Energy efficiency is the key to effective climate protection, affordable energy and buildings with a high quality of life. But we need bold decisions now, because in Germany we are still lagging far behind our own climate targets. That's why we expect the future government to come up with a binding energy efficiency strategy, also to drive forward climate protection and digitization in construction and housing. In order to get closer to the goal of a climate-neutral building stock by 2045, reliable incentives must be put in place now.
