On this closing day of COP26, European engineering consultancies, represented by the European Federation of Engineering Consultancy Associations (EFCA), acknowledge directions drawn and decisions made at COP26 to tackle climate emergency and reach the 1.5°C Paris objective.

European engineering firms reaffirm their pivotal role towards effective implementation of the Paris objective, of the 2030 European Sustainable Development Agenda and more generally of all mitigation and adaptation measures of the Built Environment to climate change.

Considering the climate urgency, EFCA urges all public bodies and European financial institutions to systematically impose climate-related criteria on all procurement processes in relation with construction projects and is ready to make the commitments formulated below in this statement (full statement below).
