All mineral products rely on transport to meet customers, from concrete mixers and cement tankers to tipper lorries, freight trains, ships and barges.
The economic importance of UK-sourced essential minerals is the focus of a new strategy document launched by the CBI Minerals Group and the Mineral Products Association (MPA).
The Mineral Products Association (MPA) has called for a more joined-up approach to all minerals following the publication of the Government’s Critical Minerals Strategy. While not decrying the need for focus on critical minerals where the UK does not have abundant supply, the MPA is disappointed the availability and supply of all minerals, some 400 million tonnes per year, continues to be assumed by Government, and that the Critical Minerals Strategy has chosen to ignore the existing UK Minerals Strategy.
Our latest positions on key policy areas and most recent publications on industry related issues.
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.
