Boosting the EU Green Deal initiatives on buildings with fire resilience

The discussion will explore ways to contribute to the EU Green Deal’s success by ensuring its initiatives on buildings take into account fire resilience to adequately green the EU building stock.

Our upcoming digital roundtable “Boosting the EU Green Deal initiatives on buildings with fire resilience” will be hosted by MEP Tanja Fajon, MEP Sirpa Pietikäinen & MEP Pernille Weiss on 30 September, from 12:00 to 13:00 CEST.

This online event will trigger reflections on fire resilience as an intricate part of sustainability. The discussion will explore ways to contribute to the EU Green Deal’s success by ensuring its initiatives on buildings take into account fire resilience to adequately green the EU building stock.

AGENDA:

  • 12:00-12:10 – Opening speech by Ms Fajon MEP;
  • 12:10-12:20 – “Fire Safety and Green Technologies - on the path to a Sustainable Built Environment” by Dr Margaret McNamee (Lund University);
  • 12:20-12:30 – Remarks by Ms Weiss MEP;
  • 12:30 – 12:40 – “Implementing a fire safe and long-term renovation strategy in Estonia” by Mr Ivo Jaanisoo (Director of Construction and Housing Department – Estonian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications);

  • 12:50– 13:00 – Key takeaways of the Roundtable by Ms Pietikäinen MEP.

Why is it a must-see roundtable?

As stated in the European Commission’s Communication on the “European Green Deal” from December 11, 2019, buildings account for 40% of the energy consumed and the construction sector is responsible for 36% of all carbon emissions in the EU.

We need to build sustainable, and we need to do it right. For fire safety, this means building fire resilient constructions. Only buildings which are able to resist to, adapt to and recover from a fire and resume to their essential functions in a timely and efficient manner, can foster a truly sustainable future.

The EU Green Deal proposes a renovation wave, a review of the Construction Products Regulation and the enforcement of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. These foreseen actions present a unique opportunity to green the EU building stock in the right way, by accounting for fire resilience. Adequately integrating fire resilience in the sustainability debate and relevant policies is critical to foster a sustainable future characterised by climate-neutrality, energy efficiency and a circular economy.
