The Mineral Products Association (MPA) has affiliated with the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA), it was confirmed at the latter’s official launch and first annual symposium earlier this month.

With the intention to attract a broad and large representation of the cement industry, the GCCA aims to have a membership that represents at least 50% of global cement production capacity. Members are producers of portland cement, clinker, and other natural cementitious clinkers for the manufacture of cement.

Dedicated to developing and strengthening the sector’s contribution to sustainable construction, the GCCA also aims to foster innovation throughout the construction value chain. It aims to do this in collaboration with industry associations, as well as architects, engineers, and innovators. It aims to demonstrate how concrete solutions can meet both global construction challenges and sustainable development goals. The association aims to do this while also showcasing responsible industrial leadership in the manufacture and use of cement and concrete. It is headquartered in London and will complement and support the work done by associations at a national and regional level.

“Our affiliation to the GCCA builds on our valued membership of 12 European Regional Trade Associations, covering aggregates, asphalt, cement, concrete, dimension stone, lime, mortar, and silica sands,” said Nigel Jackson, CEO of the MPA. “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.”
