MPA has welcomed the Government’s initiative to improve UK productivity. The Association views the move as a key strategy to ensure sustained long-term growth.
UK Minerals Products industry holds issues such as the encouragement of private and public investment, the development of skills, effective and proportionate taxation and regulation and competitive energy supply in high regard. These issues underpin much of the national production and economic activity of the association.
The government will launch a specific review into regulatory issues relating to mineral extraction and the MPA has welcomed this and has initiated a process to contribute to the review.
The Mineral Products Association (MPA) has published its Sustainable Development Report 2010, which shows how, in spite of very difficult market conditions, the industry has continued to invest in sustainability and its performance in several key areas has improved.
The United Nations has declared 2010 the International Year of Biodiversity and it is also a year when the Mineral Products Association (MPA) has made clear-cut progress on this front, as well as in sustainable development in general. This update has come direct from the MPA.
