Building a Resilient and Sustainable Europe: The Construction Manifesto for Action

In the lead-up to the European Elections, a crucial document has emerged to guide the future of the construction sector: the “Construction Manifesto for Action – EU Term 2024-2029”. Published by the European Construction Industry Federation (FIEC) and the European International Contractors (EIC), this manifesto outlines a comprehensive vision for building a resilient and sustainable Europe together.

A Collaborative Effort with Domenico Campogrande and Team

Our agency, #inextremis, had the privilege of collaborating closely with Domenico Campogrande and his team to bring this manifesto to life. The online version of the manifesto, meticulously crafted in ten European languages, underscores our commitment to inclusivity and accessibility. We are particularly proud to announce the recent addition of the Ukrainian version, making the manifesto available in eleven languages.

Key Messages for a Sustainable Future

The manifesto is not just a document but a call to action. As we approach the European Elections, here are the ten key messages set forth to shape the future of construction in Europe:

1. Sustainability as a Core Principle

   – Emphasising green building practices and reducing carbon footprints.

2. Innovation and Digitalisation

   – Promoting the adoption of cutting-edge technologies to enhance efficiency and safety.

3. Investment in Skills and Education

   – Ensuring a skilled workforce through continuous training and education programmes.

4. Fair Competition and Market Access

   – Supporting policies that ensure fair competition and open markets across Europe.

5. Enhanced Infrastructure and Connectivity

   – Investing in infrastructure projects that improve connectivity and mobility.

6. Resilient and Safe Construction

   – Prioritising safety standards and resilience in construction practices.

7. Support for SMEs

   – Creating a favourable environment for small and medium-sized enterprises to thrive.

8. Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

   – Advancing energy-efficient solutions and the use of renewable energy in construction.

9. Social Responsibility and Inclusion

   – Promoting social responsibility and inclusion within the industry.

10. Regulatory Frameworks and Policies

    – Advocating for supportive regulatory frameworks that foster innovation and growth.
