Multiplier Effect Study - Concrete Dialogue - 19 Nov 2015
This study by La Bipe (Euroconstruct) management consultants, has documented that for every job created in cement and concrete within the construction industry, nearly three jobs (2.8) are created in the wider economy. The report’s findings were revealed at the conference "Citizens at the heart of  the sustainability-built environment" hosted by The Concrete Initiative on 19 November 2015 in Brussels. The conference brought together European and local policymakers and other interested stakeholders to discuss the economic, social and environmental benefits of sustainable construction for Europe’s citizens.

The Le Bipe study also highlighted the key sectors where cement and concrete are used which in turn contribute to Europe’s low carbon economy. These include energy efficiency, transport infrastructure and sustainable construction.

The Concrete Initiative calls for higher levels of investment into sustainable construction to boost jobs and growth and at the same time help build Europe’s low carbon economy
