World Accreditation Day 2017: delivering confidence in construction and the built environment

Cofrac held a press briefing for the 2017 World Accreditation Day. This year’s theme focuses on how accreditation can support professionals in the construction industry.

French growth is fueled by construction and the built environment sectors, which should still contribute to the economy in 2017, according to the French National Institute for Statistics and Economic Research (INSEE). The need for high-quality developments as well as safe and high-performance constructions is increasing.

The construction and the built environment sectors are facing increasing challenges in a context of reducing environmental footprint, decreasing allocations available to communities, improvement of the quality of living as well as ensuring a safe work environment on site.

Trust is a key to long-term success in addressing today’s challenges. Accreditation is a very efficient tool and an answer to a smart, safe and sustainable construction and city, providing guarantees within the supply chain.
