The Mineral Products Association (MPA) has partnered with the Institute for Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) and MP Skills to offer employees in the mineral products industry the opportunity to take courses on sustainability.

Through specifically designed training courses, employees will be able to improve and extend their knowledge and competence around the areas of sustainability and the environment.

Together, the three organisations have worked together to design courses that will provide non-environmental specialists with the knowledge, understanding, and motivation to make a positive difference in their businesses.

“These courses and the opportunities for further professional development with IEMA complement MPA’s objectives and reflect the increasing necessity for all industry businesses and employees to improve their awareness of sustainability issues,” said Jerry McLaughlin, Executive Director of the MPA.

“This partnership marks a strategic shift to the way in which the sector is responding to the sustainability challenge,” said Emma Bellingham, Head of Training and Development at IEMA. “The positive impact that training will have on extractives organisations is fundamental to future-proofing the industry and IEMA is proud to collaborate with the MPA and MP Skills to deliver the change.”

“This collaboration is a fantastic opportunity to bring the expertise of our three organisations together for the benefit of the industry,” said Trish Jagger, General Manager of MP Skills. “I am very much looking forward to seeing MP Skills trainers deliver these essential courses that will sit alongside our ever-expanding range of training solutions.”
