Sustainable solutions

The MPA is now best placed to work closely with others and produce answers to today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.

It can provide guidance on the design, use and performance of its products to enable their full potential to be realised. For example concrete offers long-term performance, built in thermal efficiency, unrivalled fire resistance, sound insulation, and flood resistance plus robustness and minimum maintenance. Modern asphalts improve road safety, maximise road life and reduce maintenance. All of our product sectors are committed to developing sustainable solutions from responsibly sourced products.
