EU Sustainable Energy Week 2014 - Save the date

The Sustainable Energy Week 2014 will take place between 23 and 27 June 2014. See more at www.eusew.eu

EAACA is pleased to invite you to a High Level Policy Conference as part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2014.
The event is titled “Towards a Pragmatic Energy Policy for Buildings along the Supply Chain” and will discuss the AAC industry’s view on improving energy efficiency in buildings and what realistic and affordable zero Energy Building solutions could look like. It will also discuss how transport of construction products along the supply chain can be made more sustainable and efficient in partnership with builders’ merchants.

The event is part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week that is organised every year by the European Commission to support the EU 2020 energy and climate goals. It has become the reference point for public authorities, energy agencies, private companies, NGOs, media and industry associations by bringing together high level EU officials and stakeholders. Last year over 3000 people attended the week and journalists reported on it in all 28 Member States.
