MPA Conference ‘Growth & Climate Change’ opened on location at J & J Franks

J & J Franks are proud to be part of the Mineral Products Association (MPA). Annually, the MPA hold a themed conference. This year’s conference focused on ‘Growth & Climate Change… ‘Balancing the Issues’. The conference brought together leading speakers who considered the current UK political and economic outlook, climate change and how the industry is responding to the challenge of industrial decarbonisation.

Excitingly, MPA Chief Executive Nigel Jackson opened the event on location from our sand quarry and waste facility in Nutfield, Surrey. He emphasized the importance of diverse geology in counties like Surrey, in meeting the need for essential mineral products, he talked to Franks’ Managing Director Peter Crate about the challenges and opportunities of securing planning consent and obtaining permits when setting up a new site.
