One year on from the European Commission’s review of the Raw Materials Initiative and following the recent proposals on Resource Efficiency, the 2012 conference  debated the practical and political steps Europe must take to ensure a secure and sustainable supply of the Raw Materials - a crucial factor in industrial competitiveness and the growth of the low carbon economy - whilst keeping sight of its ongoing commitment to the protection of the natural environment and international development. the event brought together senior policy makers from the EU and national governments with stakeholders from the extraction and downstream industries, NGOs and Academia, and provided an excellent opportunity for interactive debate and discussion on the future of Europe’s Raw Materials policy.
