European Federation of Foundation Contractors



For the EFFC sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations.

We have created a Sustainability Charter that sets out what this means for companies operating in the foundation industry, which can be downloaded by following the links below.

The EFFC has collaborated with the Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) to create the EFFC/DFI Carbon Calculator tool.

The calculator allows the carbon footprint for foundation works to be determined. We are working towards this tool being adopted globally as a means to assess the carbon impact of different designs with the intention of helping clients to select more sustainable solutions for their projects.
