The Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) is an independent, non-profit organisation based in Brussels. BPIE supports the development of ambitious but pragmatic building-related policies and programs at both EU and Member State levels. We timely drive the implementation of these policies by teaming up with relevant stakeholders from the building industry, consumer bodies, policy and research communities. With the TightVent Europe Platform, our ambition is to play a key role in implementing policies on building and ductwork airtightness, bearing in mind ventilation needs.
The European Climate Foundation aims to promote climate and energy policies that greatly reduce Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions and helps Europe play an even stronger international leadership role in mitigating climate change. ECF supports the TightVent platform in its mission to create support for proper implementation of the new Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) and to help policy makers, industry, developers and other stakeholders in the deployment of low-energy buildings.

Eurima is the European Insulation Manufacturers Association. Eurima members manufacture mineral wool insulation products. We actively support TightVent to develop knowledge and application of efficient airtightness solution for a successful implementation of the recast of the EPBD. This requires a good coordination between strong insulation and well-functioning ventilation in order to guarantee both energy efficiency and good indoor air quality.
INIVE is a registered European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG) that brings together the best available knowledge from its member organisations in the area of energy efficiency, indoor climate and ventilation. INIVE strongly supports and acts as facilitator of TightVent Europe because it clearly fits within the objectives of our grouping, namely, fostering and structuring RTD and field implementation of energy-efficient solutions and good indoor climate in new and existing buildings.
