At the cutting edge of European policymaking
GBS Representative Office, Brussels
We opened our Brussels office in 2019 to ensure that GBS is at the forefront of key EU decisions and policies on sustainable construction and infrastructure.
We hold and attend regular events and debates with key EU institutions and other industry leaders to transform new ideas, solutions and modern technologies into pioneering projects securing a more prosperous future for Europe.
The opening of the representative office of Glavbolgarstoy in Brussels in 2019 coincided with the 50th anniversary of the company’s establishment and laid the foundations for a more effective participation of the company in the dialogue on the future of the construction sector at the European level.
In 2021, in collaboration with EurActiv, we focused on the impact of the pandemic on the South East Europe region and the green recovery thereafter, encompassing the restoration and fostering a new comprehension of buildings and construction processes. As part of the event titled “(Re)building Europe: What challenges are Member States facing?”, speakers from European institutions, industry representatives, and other stakeholders participated, addressing key issues concerning the new economic and environmental challenges encountered by the construction sector in South-Eastern Europe.
In June 2022, during a working visit with the Chamber of Builders in Bulgaria to the European Parliament, we engaged in discussions about the digital and innovation challenges confronted by the construction sector and explored opportunities for transformation in the context of the European Green Deal. The event united representatives from the European Parliament, the European Commission, the European and Bulgarian construction industries, businesses, and academia.
In these years of activity in Brussels, we have been cooperating with Build Europe, the European Construction Technology Platform (ECTP), and the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance (established by the European Commission) amongst others. We look forward to engaging with more policy makers and stakeholders in the construction and energy sectors.
