MPA joins the Global Cement and Concrete Association

28 Nov 2018

The Mineral Product Association (MPA) has been confirmed as an affiliate to the new Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) at the official launch and first annual symposium of the GCCA in London last week.

The GCCA is dedicated to developing and strengthening the sector’s contribution to sustainable construction. The GCCA aims to foster innovation throughout the construction value chain in collaboration with industry associations as well as architects, engineers and innovators.

In this way, the association will demonstrate how concrete solutions can meet global construction challenges and sustainable development goals while showcasing responsible industrial leadership in the manufacture and use of cement and concrete. With headquarters in London, the new association will complement and support the work done by associations at national and regional level.

MPA Chief Executive, Nigel Jackson said: “Our affiliation to GCCA builds on our valued membership of 12 European Regional Trade Associations covering aggregates, asphalt, cement, concrete, dimension stone, lime, mortar, silica sands. The strengthening of the link between the MPA’s national role, the regional associations and now the global level is a positive and logical next step in aligning the advocacy and influence of the industry in a fast changing and complex world.

We look forward to playing an active role in the GCCA working with equally committed and passionate colleagues from around the world to showcase what a great industry this is and how our essential products and sustainable solutions underpin economies and our quality of life.”
