Our approach to sustainability has evolved progressively since MPA was formed in 2009. We now represent 14 product groups with 520 members under an umbrella that covers 20 per cent of aggregates production and 100 per cent of GB cement production. This level of activity combined with a substantial total landholding means that MPA can do much to influence the cause of sustainable development across the UK.
The Mineral Products Association (MPA) is the trade association for the aggregates, asphalt, cement, concrete, dimension stone, lime, mortar and silica sand industries.
