Jeremy Greenwood to chair UK Concrete
Appointment set to reinforce defence and promotion of concrete’s sustainability credentials
JEREMY Greenwood has been appointed as chair of UK Concrete to work with director Chris Leese to marshal the collective resources within the Mineral Products Association (MPA) – The Concrete Centre, MPA Cement, British Ready-mixed Concrete Association (BRMCA) and British Precast – as part of the roadmap the sector is implementing to go ‘Beyond Net Zero by 2050’.
MPA chief executive Nigel Jackson said: ‘I am delighted that Jeremy is joining the MPA team as chair of UK Concrete. Whilst at Tarmac he played a major role in developing the thinking within the sector on the promotion of concrete’s sustainability credentials and is a natural and passionate champion for what is the world’s most sought-after man-made material.
‘Working closely with the UK Concrete team and supported by the combined resources of the MPA, the industry is signalling its determination to go ‘on the front foot’ to defend and promote the use of essential concrete in the built environment using hard evidence and integrity.
‘Jeremy’s extensive commercial experience and industry knowledge significantly reinforces the MPA’s effort to take on the challenges posed by global warming and the changing construction agenda.’
Responding, Mr Greenwood (pictured) said: ‘I am thrilled to be able to continue to contribute to the industry in my new role and look forward to being part of the front-line team making the case for UK concrete in this important year with COP 26.’
