To meet all the challenges related to energy, renewable energy, climate change, air quality, the Brussels-Capital Region has developed an integrated approach which has already been declined into a regulation document (Brussels Air, Climate and Energy Code - COBRACE) and into a planning document (Air, Climate, Energy Plan). Buildings and transport sectors are the primary targets, as they emit more than 2/3 of the CO2 emitted in Brussels.

The COBRACE defines new requirements such as EPB standards, environmental performance standards for vehicles of public authorities, restriction on parking lots in company buildings, energy performance for public lightening, it creates a climate fund to implement GHG emissions reducing measures, etc.
