FIEC CONFIRMS CENTRAL ROLE OF CONSTRUCTION IN ACHIEVING THE #EUGREENDEAL OBJECTIVES
"Having held many hypothetical discussions over the last few weeks, we can now dig into the detail of the Green Deal to analyse its implications for our industry” says FIEC President Kjetil Tonning, on the publication of the EU Green Deal. "As contractors, we are committed to sustainable construction and we will study the communication over the coming days, to see how it matches our initial expectations. It is clear that our industry will play a key role in the achievement of its objectives.”
In a statement launching the Green Deal, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said "this is Europe’s man on the moon moment”. She went on to say that "we owe it to our children” to take action now. Amongst the highlights of her short statement, she mentioned "50 actions for 2050” as well as an investment of €100BN for the "most vulnerable regions and sectors”.
