Since 1987, UEPG represents the European Aggregates Industry in Brussels, with members in 24 European countries. By far, it is the largest non-energy extractive industry, covering a demand of 3 billion tonnes of aggregates per year, produced on 26,000 sites by 15,000 companies (mostly SMEs), and employing 200,000 people across Europe.
The UEPG General Secretariat conducts public affairs activities. We promote our members’ interests at the national and European level in economic, technical, health & safety and environmental policies. We coordinate the EU network and pro-actively identify EU initiatives and policies that are likely to impact the European aggregates producers, keeping members updated on relevant policy developments and ensuring UEPG positions are considered by EU decision-makers.
