The Mineral Products Association (MPA) has published its updated Biodiversity Strategy Building on our Legacy – Realising our Potential originally launched in 2013.
Quality restoration of land borrowed for the extraction of minerals is one of the trademarks of the modern quarrying industry. Indeed, without proper provision for restoration, secured through planning conditions, permission to work a quarry will not be given.

One of the industry’s best kept secrets is the enormous contribution it makes to restoring and improving land after quarrying is complete.
The mineral products industry has a long legacy of high-quality restoration and is uniquely placed to protect and enhance UK biodiversity, including rare and threatened species.
The Strategy commits the MPA and its members to continuing to take a positive approach to nature conservation and recovery, leaving behind more and better quality habitats than before mineral extraction.
MPA has published its latest Sustainable Development Report which covers a range of data from 2020/21 and is aligned with MPA’s seven main strategic priorities and the corresponding objectives and targets.
