The EU FIEP (Fire Information Exchange Platform) was launched with the aim of improving fire safety across the EU by sharing information on best practices between Member States. The EU’s Fire Statistics Project (EU FireStat, final report to be published soon) has collected information on what fire statistics exist in Member States, and what are their needs to support improving fire safety. The aim is to identify a number of key statistics as indicators and to then encourage Member States to progressively implement and harmonise these. These indicators will not directly address sustainability. FIEP could address the question of integrating sustainability and fire safety.
