Sustainability - Sustainable production
UK consumption of cement works out at about a quarter of a tonne per person per year, so it is essential this vital material can be produced in a sustainable manner for development and maintenance of our built environment.
As an essential ingredient of concrete, cement is playing its part in contibuting to a better built environment. Concrete provides long-term perfomance, built-in thermal eficiency, fire resistance, sound insultation and flood resilience plus robustness and minimum maintenance.
More detailed evidence of concrete’s benefits are included in Concrete proof, available from the MPA The Concrete Centre.
