Construction 2050 Alliance publishes its call and commitment for the new EU political term

In view of the European elections, last 13 December, the Construction 2050 Alliance released its Call and commitment for the new European Union political term, reminding how fundamental the construction industry is to the people-economy-climate triangle, and therefore to the competitiveness of the EU. 

The key-role of the construction sector has never been more important in delivering the green, competitive, and inclusive transition of the built environment, but suffers from a severe decline in demand. As we enter an election year, the Construction 2050 Alliance is calling for a cross-stakeholder coordinated and integrated EU-policy approach to improving the climate resilience of our sector’s process and output under the new EU-Commission mandate

As a first step, the Construction 2050 Alliance is committed to establishing, with the support of European policymakers, an annual High-Level Summit for the Built environment, inviting all the relevant policymakers at EU and national level to come together to take stock of the evolution in the construction market.  

To continue its indispensable contribution to the achievement of the EU’s environmental, social, and economic ambitions, work must begin no later than early 2024, in coordination with the Belgian Presidency of the Council.  

The Construction 2050 Alliance is firm in its commitment to ensuring that the fundamental contribution made by the construction industry is recognised and supported by policymakers, with the aim of building tomorrow’s Europe today.
