    Friends & Colleagues,

    Céad Míle Fáilte (Hundred Thousand Welcomes) to Dublin, in Ireland … and to the First International Conference devoted to this complex subject.

    The 21st Century has had a cruel and savage birth: extreme man-made events, hybrid disasters, severe natural events, complex humanitarian emergencies, with accelerating climate change and variability. The old certainties are crumbling before our eyes …

    The resolute Answer to these threats and the rapidly changing social and environmental needs of our world is Sustainable Fire Engineering !

    1. SFE fulfils a critical role in the realization of a Safe, Resilient & Sustainable Built Environment for All ;
    2. SFE facilitates positive progress towards the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals & 169 Performance Targets, which were adopted in September 2015 ;
    3. SFE fast-tracks proper compliance with the Basic Requirements for Construction Works in the European Union’s Construction Products Regulation 305/2011 (Annex I), specifically the interlinked Requirements 7, 2, 1, 3 & 4.

    Please join us in an informal, multidisciplinary and pre-normative forum … as we examine Sustainable Fire Engineering more deeply.

    C.J. Walsh.
    On Behalf of the SFE 2016 DUBLIN Management Team.

Sustainable Fire Engineering 2016 Dublin will be a thought provoking benchmark event which will bridge the gap between fire safety and sustainability in a resilient built environment, through dynamic dialogue led by professionals in both fields. This conference will focus on sharing knowledge between the fire safety and sustainability communities, specifically on how fire safety is dealt with in building codes and regulations … and how the design of sustainable buildings can inadvertently affect fire safety, and vice versa. The aim is to reach an understanding of how fire safety and sustainability can go hand-in-hand … to creatively complement each other … and to find appropriate routes to implement this in the sustainability impact assessment of buildings. This conference will take place in Dublin, Ireland, from 28-30 September, 2016 … kicking off with a half-day workshop and reception, followed by two days of engaging speaker sessions, discussions, and many opportunities to meet fire safety and sustainability professionals.
