The Mineral Products Association (MPA) has published its Sustainable Development Report 2020 which covers a range of data from 2019/20 and is aligned with MPA’s seven main strategic priorities and the corresponding objectives and targets. Despite challenging circumstances, the report outlines improvements across the mineral products sector.
Due to COVID-19, the UK economy is estimated to have contracted by 10% in 2020. However, construction activity and mineral products markets started to recover faster than the rest of the UK economy in the second half of the year. During this difficult period, the MPA continued to champion industry issues and a number of crucial documents were published or updated including the UK Concrete and Cement Roadmap to Beyond Net Zero and the revised MPA Biodiversity Strategy.
