Concrete Industry

In 2008, the UK concrete industry agreed a Concrete Industry Sustainable Construction Strategy for the UK concrete industry to be recognised as a leader in sustainable construction, by taking a dynamic role in delivering a sustainable, low carbon built environment in a socially, environmentally and economically responsible manner.

Our strategy represents progression, continuous improvement and an increase in scope. The concrete industry will continue to develop performance indicators to ensure the relevance of our metrics. The industry will facilitate further engagement with the broader supply chain for concrete, offering the opportunity to inform development of the strategy and supporting initiatives.

 
Collectively as an industry - and individually as manufacturers, sector trade associations and MPA The Concrete Centre - we are committed to supporting stakeholders in realising the potential, and understanding the sustainability credentials, of concrete and its constituents.
