Environmental sustainability of plastics in construction

About Us

We are an alliance of trade associations and companies representing the plastics industry in the construction sector.

Plastics are increasingly used in building and construction applications to make our buildings more sustainable, from window frames and durable pipes to state-of-the-art insulation solutions.

Our mission

An essential pillar of our cause is the ambition for greater fire safety across the construction industry.  It is a key driver of our product design and manufacturing: improving the fire safety of buildings is a joint responsibility of the whole value chain involved in building and construction.

That’s why, by engaging with policy makers and stakeholders, we are committed to supporting the EU in ensuring safe and sustainable construction for people across Europe.

Our members

The Modern Building Alliance relies on a board to define its priorities and the strategic orientation, and on 2 working groups to structure its work: the technical working group is looking at fire safety, buildings regulations and technical aspects, and the public affairs working group is focused on communications activities.

Based in Brussels, its activities are coordinated and led by the Executive Chair, Quentin de Hults.


Products and materials

Our products cover a wide range of materials with unique properties and specific applications.

Our members are particularly active in the field of thermal insulation with Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), Extruded Polystyrene (XPS)polyurethanes (PUR/PIR) and phenolics (PF).

You can find additional information on the various other applications of plastics in construction on the PlasticsEurope website.
