FSEU Webinar – Three reasons why fire resilience contributes to sustainable buildings

Fire Safe Europe (FSEU) will hold a free webinar “Three reasons why fire resilience contributes to sustainable buildings” on 22 May from 14:30 to 15:00 CEST. The webinar is open to anybody having an interest in sustainability and/ or fire safety.

Please note that there is a limit to the number of attendees – register as soon as possible!

Summary & objectives

We are changing the way we build. Modern sustainable buildings cater to new end-user needs, bring new technologies and the use of new materials, which significantly influences the performance of buildings in fire.

When we create sustainable buildings, we consider indoor environment quality, water efficiency, materials and resources, energy efficiency, etc. Yet we forget what should be an important element of any sustainable building: fire resilience.

Through this webinar, you will:

  • Learn more about how fire resilience of buildings can contribute to the sustainable development goals 9, 11 and 12,
  • Discover why fire resilience needs to be considered when developing policies, regulations and sustainable building rating schemes.
