    Aggregates Europe - UEPG represents aggregates producers supplying sand, gravel, crushed rock, marine aggregates, manufactured and recycled aggregates. We promote the profile of the European Aggregates Industry and is the voice of its members in 25 countries. The Industry responds to the demand of 3 billion tonnes per year, comprises some 15,000 companies (mostly SMEs), producing at 26,000 sites involving 187,000 employees (including contractors). Our vision is a Sustainable Industry for a Sustainable Europe. Being a local industry, the Aggregates Industry produces in Europe, for Europe. Since 1987, Aggregates Europe - UEPG has promoted the interests of aggregates producers by representing its National Member Associations on environmental and health & safety, economic and technical policy. The European Aggregates Industry produces primary and secondary raw materials, contributes to biodiversity during and after extraction and offers increasingly areas producing renewable energy.

    Meetings

    4 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
