Skills & Qualifications for sustainable building

Several meetings of the five EC working groups for the implementation of the EC Strategy for the sustainable competitiveness of the construction sector and its enterprises have taken place in spring and autumn. The ECEC is represented in the “Skills & Qualifications WG” by Vice-President Letzner. Additionally an informal meeting has taken place in July 2013 with the aim to brainstorm possibilities for these professions to take a more leading role in retrofit projects designed to achieve carbon reduction etc. As this was an extremely good opportunity to stress the important role of Engineers in sustainable building and the economic importance of such projects for the Engineering profession ECEC President Remec has represented the ECEC at that meeting.
