The Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE) recently met the experts at Volvo CE to discuss how technology and environmental change are shaping the future of the industry.
The visit to Sweden this month of the Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE), the recognized organization representing and promoting European construction equipment and related industries, coordinating the views of National Associations and their members, was headed up by the association’s Secretary General Riccardo Viaggi. It formed part of a Europe-wide tour to meet national member associations and companies and discuss future technology changes, market conditions, pending regulatory issues and the current pressing concerns facing the construction equipment industry.
The innovation behind Volvo CE’s Construction Climate Challenge provided one of the most influential lessons that CECE aims to take forward from the trip. Mr Viaggi said: “An interesting element of the talks was the Construction Climate Challenge (CCC), where environmental and social responsibility is used to positively influence and leverage change in the whole construction value chain – an approach that CECE wants to follow in the Brussels arena, as recently proposed and endorsed at the CECE Summit in October.”
