We are an alliance of trade associations and companies representing the plastics industry in the construction sector. By engaging with policy makers and stakeholders, we are committed to supporting the EU in ensuring safe and sustainable construction for people across Europe.
IMPROVING FIRE SAFETY IN EUROPE
The Modern Building Alliance explains why a holistic, data-based and performance oriented approach is key to advancing fire safety, and its aims to inspire improvements in fire safety practices across Europe.
Plastics are increasingly used in building and construction applications to make our buildings more sustainable, from window frames and durable pipes to state-of-the-art insulation solutions.
An essential pillar of our cause is the ambition for greater fire safety across the construction industry. It is a key driver of our product design and manufacturing: improving the fire safety of buildings is a joint responsibility of the whole value chain involved in building and construction.
That’s why, by engaging with policy makers and stakeholders, we are committed to supporting the EU in ensuring safe and sustainable construction for people across Europe.
The increasing popularity of plastics in construction is due to many factors: their performance, durability, weathering resistance, low maintenance, cost-effectiveness, light weight and design flexibility. These qualities make them ideal products for construction and an essential component of the transition to a low-carbon economy.
