The European Parliament updated the Construction Products Regulation

On 10 April 2024, the European Parliament approved the updated version of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), which aims to promote sustainability in the construction sector within the EU through the adoption of circular business models.

Relevant aspects include the requirement to report on the environmental performance of construction products throughout their life cycle, linked to embedded #carbonemissions, and the new requirements for Green Public Procurement (GPP), which introduce minimum environmental sustainability standards for public procurement from 2026, favouring the demand for #construction products with a low #carbonfootprint.

The extension of information management by means of digital passports to construction products is also interesting.

The next steps in the EU Council are now awaited.

The Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) of AFV Beltrame Group’s entire product range already meet the demands of sustainable construction.
