The Construction 2050 Alliance is a platform set up on an initiative by FIEC together with EBC (European Builders Confederation), Construction Products Europe and CECE (Committee for European Construction Equipment), with the aim of strengthening cooperation on issues of common interest between European organisations representing key players in the construction sector; and participating on a voluntary basis.
More than 40 different organisations are currently involved in the Alliance.
The principal aim of the Construction 2050 Alliance is the establishment and recognition of a single comprehensive policy approach for the European construction sector through raising the awareness of decision makers at European level of the specific issues affecting the sector as a whole.
To ensure this, the Construction 2050 Alliance is developing its activities in four different areas:
1. A specific targeted approach to construction in policy making, because the sector is at the crossroads of different value chains. Its unique nature requires a unique approach.
2. An adaptable policy framework to address the evolving construction ecosystem and the transformation of the industry.
3. A holistic approach towards policy making in order to implement coherent and balanced policies and legislation.
4. A strong partnership between the European institutions, the Member States and construction stakeholders to steer the transformation of the sector with the most adequate policies and tools.
