Following the great success of the first edition of this innovative guide to the terminology of sustainable construction in the EU, the EESC together with its partner CEMBUREAU and European Architects' Council has improved and updated the publication and is now launching the 2nd edition, both as a practical printed spiral bound booklet and an online and mobile version.

In response to the need for more sustainable construction, new concepts, phrases, terms and expressions are being used in the construction industry across Europe. These concepts are aimed at improving the environmental, social and economic impact of the industry and its outputs. From Air Source Heat Pumps to Net Zero Carbon Buildings; from Whole Life Costing to Photovoltaic Electricity; from Recycled Resources to Passive House; it is important that the industry reaches a common understanding of these terms – to speak a common language for sustainable construction – in order to provide a base for harmonised development in the future.

Second Edition for this version only

    Civil Society Prize 2014 : The integration of Roma

    Civil society organisations around Europe work every day – frequently on a voluntary basis – to build a fairer and more inclusive society. At the EU level, the European Economic and Social Committee represents their interests and aims to ensure that their efforts receive the recognition they deserve. With this in mind, the EESC launched its Civil Society Prize eight years ago in order to “reward excellence in civil society initiatives”.

    This year’s prize is aimed at organisations or individuals who have undertaken outstanding projects to improve the economic and social inclusion of Roma people and communities.

    Establishing a European platform to combat undeclared work - Position paper – September 2014

    Undeclared work in Europe undermines the European ideals of the rule of law, security, solidarity, social and fiscal justice, free market competition and the free movement of workers. Therefore, the setting up of a European Platform to combat irregular employment must be welcomed. The elimination of undeclared work in Europe would be a great achievement.

    European immigration policy and relations with other countries Position paper – July 2014

    "Member States cannot face the challenges brought by immigration alone. There is a need for a greater solidarity to ensure that no Member State is facing a disproportionate amount of pressure due to its geographical situation. A common policy on immigration and integration is needed to benefit from migratory fluxes."
    Panagiotis Gkofas, rapporteur on 'European immigration policy and relations with third countries'

    "Europe must manage its immigration policy in collaboration with third countries. European external borders are common borders. Solidarity must be strengthened to welcome new refugees and protect the human rights of immigrants."
    Luis Miguel Pariza Castanos, co-rapporteur on 'European immigration policy and relations with third countries'

    Completing Europe's Economic and Monetary Union Position paper – July 2014

    "EMU, which is substantially more than what is being discussed on the table now, is indispensable to re-create confidence in the European project. Only its completion and full implementation will encourage investments and boost growth and jobs."
    Joost van Iersel, co-rapporteur on ‘Completing EMU – The next European legislature’

    "The existing EMU is an anachronistic legal and economic system, that has shown itself to be totally ineffective in the face of the crisis. So we are proposing that within the next five years, the missing pillars should be put in place... This is a real challenge for all of us as Europeans. Will politicians be capable of meeting it?”

    Access to EU finance for SMEs - what can we learn from Greece?

    Although the role of SMEs in the EU economy is crucial and their well-being should be a priority for European policy-makers, they struggle with access to finance especially in the countries severely hit by the crisis. The Greek experience might and should be taken as a case study and lead to conclusions on how to improve the system for the future.
