We, as responsible actors in the urban area, need to find smart solutions to:  

  • improve citizens' quality of life  
  • increase the competitiveness of Europe's industry and innovative companies  
  • contribute to sustainability and the EU’s energy and climate targets for 2020 and 2030

EAACA and its members therefore support the European Smart Cities Initiative by:  

  • Developing smarter, more efficient construction products that save energy and reduce the environmental impact of new buildings  
  • Sharing knowledge on innovative products and technologies  
  • Help develop new standards for modern and sustainable building designs  
  • Support collaborative, integrated smart city planning  
  • Introduce performance and life-cycle assessments, sustainability assessment, and visualisation of impacts  
  • Provide construction materials for future centuries

All our products are developed to fulfil these criteria and will help make Europe’s cities smarter.
