Living with Minerals 7 Conference

Organized by the MPA on behalf of the CBI Minerals Group – ‘UK Minerals Strategy – Three Years On’

THE UK Minerals Strategy was published by the CBI Minerals Group three years ago with the aim of ensuring that UK demand for minerals and mineral products is supplied sustainably for the next 25 years.

Compered by broadcaster and journalist Sue Nelson, the ‘Living with Minerals 7 Conference’ will go online on Thursday 15 July 2021 (1pm–4pm) to review progress of the strategy against its key themes, and the priorities for ensuring sufficient minerals and mineral products are supplied to key sectors of the economy and contribute to other agendas, especially net zero and net gain.
