GBS and the EU
At the cutting edge of European policymaking
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 celebration of the 50th GBS anniversary coincided with the official opening of the Brussels office at the end of 2019. For the occasion, we engaged with the Bulgarian community in Brussels, as well as with key stakeholders in our sector.
Later on in 2021, when the pandemic was coming to an end, we worked with EurActiv to address the impact of the pandemic on the Southeast region of Europe and the EU’s post-pandemic Green Recovery. Our event, (Re)constructing Europe: What challenges are Member States facing?, featuring speakers from EU institutions and the industry, attracted several stakeholders and was an overall sucess.
Additionally, we engaged with the European Parliament through the framework of the high-level conference ‘European Parliament of Enterprises’ 2018.
It’s our responsibility and privilege to build our clients, partners, and staff’s awareness on the many positives of introducing energy-efficiency measures and using energy-efficient machinery and technology.
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.
