EurActiv ‘Special Report’ on raw materials

Date

28 Feb 2011

Sections

EU Priorities 2020

Sustainable Dev.

EurActiv, the leading online media on European Union policies, will be running special coverage, from 28 February to 4 March, on raw materials. In the special report, EurActiv journalists will deal with the European Union’s strategy in the field and the positions of the relevant stakeholders, both NGOs and industry.
 

EurActiv will cover, among other topics: international trade issues, recycling, raw materials use and challenges in downstream industrial supply chain, as well as domestic mining.
 

In November 2008, the European Commission presented a new integrated strategy for raw materials, suggesting three pillars for the EU's policy response to global resource scarcity: better and undistorted access to raw materials on world markets; improved conditions for raw materials extraction within Europe; and reducing the EU's consumption of raw materials by increasing resource efficiency and recycling. Since then, an EU expert group has identified 14 raw materials seen as "critical" for EU high-tech and eco-industries and suggested that the European Union's global diplomacy should be geared up to ensure that companies gain easier access to them in future.
