Construction Product Europe has sent a letter to the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council to inform them about the impact of Covid_19 on the construction industry.
The response came faster  and the CPE Secretary, Mr. Sykes,  received the invitation to speak to the European Commissioner Breton, who is in charge of the internal market.
A first online meeting allowed the Commissioner to understand the scale of the crisis and he asked his services to run an impact study on the sector. 
The impact study reveals a 50% loss in revenue for Q2, 25% in Q3 and 12,5% in Q4. Therefore, the construction industry stands to be recognised as extremely impacted and Commissioner Breton will fight for European funds to be earmarked for the recovery of our sector. 
Three axes were identified for potential action, renovation works, infrastructure and social housing.
