  • From 503 applicants, FIEC was appointed as a Member of the Platform on Sustainable Finance and will be among the 50 experts to advise the European Commission on the development of the technical screening criteria for the EU Taxonomy. This membership is a unique opportunity for FIEC to ensure the industry’s contribution to a sustainable Europe by making construction activities more sustainable.
  • The EU Taxonomy is the key to achieving a sustainable recovery after the crisis. This is particularly the case for the construction sector, which is essential for making the transition to a more sustainable economy a reality. The investment gap for the sector is immense. Filling this gap by launching sustainable construction projects, i.e. buildings and infrastructure, will bring benefits for the entire economy and will significantly contribute to the achievement of the Green Deal’s objectives.
  • We very much thank the European Commission officials for their efforts in analysing the large number of applications and their willingness to ensure a sector balance in the platform and we very much appreciate their trust in our abilities. We are ready, committed and will provide a high level of expertise and engagement.
  • The list of members of the platform can be found here.

FIEC is the European Construction Industry Federation, representing via its 32 National Member Federations in 28 countries (25 EU & Norway, Ukraine, Turkey) construction enterprises of all sizes, i.e. small and medium-sized enterprises as well as “global players”, carrying out all forms of building and civil engineering activities.
