This webinar on 11 April follows the European Commission’s proposal for the European Critical Raw Materials Regulation on 16 March 2023. It aims to explore some of the opportunities and challenges linked to the EU’s new strategy for securing the supply of CRMs, both inside and outside the EU.
The regulation will have implications for the EU’s own internal environmental and circular economy-related objectives, as well as external impacts through shifts in demand for CRMs and trade flows. This event will identify focus areas for policymakers and the international community to ensure that the objectives of the regulation can be achieved by accelerating the shift to a global circular economy without hindering global sustainable development goals.
The 70th session of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) will take place in April 2023 in Geneva. The Commission, UNECE's highest decision-making body, will take stock of its work to promote a circular economy and the sustainable use of natural resources.
