Euromines Position on Resource-Efficiency
The mining industry welcomes the issuing of the EU’s recent Communication on Resource-Efficiency, which is proposed as a long-term framework for actions in many EU policy areas, including climate change, energy, transport, industry, raw materials, agriculture, biodiversity and regional development. In September, the European Commission will propose its “Roadmap” to a Resource-Efficient Economy. The European mining industry is keen to inform the process by assisting EU decision-makers in understanding global minerals markets and investment decisions. Our aim is to contribute to stakeholders' understanding of the resource efficiency agenda; linking to the information provided so far by the European Commission, academia, think-tanks, trade associations and mining companies.
The attached document outlines the views of Euromines members and some expectations as to what the Roadmap should deliver for the EU.
