Eurometaux letter to Commissioner Breton and President Šefcovic | Agenda for a resilient European metals supply for the green and digital transitions
In its COVID-19 recovery, the EU is prioritising a more resilient supply of the metals
and minerals demanded in higher volumes for the green and digital transitions. Europe’s
metals industry has a shared ambition to invest into improving European resilience and
advancing our global sustainability leadership. We need to learn lessons from COVID-19’s disruption of global supply chains and ensure security of metals supply.
Together, our business leaders emphasise the growing urgency for the EU to make its
secure and sustainable metals supply a central priority in plans for a resilient, green,
and digital European economy. In this declaration we recommend a comprehensive EU
agenda that unlocks financing and investment, takes bold global action, creates a level
playing field, and makes sustainability Europe’s metals differentiator.
