Position paper – EC Initiatives on Raw Materials
ACEA Position on the Commission´s Initiatives on Raw Materials, and the Flagship Initiative for a Resource Efficient Europe.
The Commission’s Initiative on Raw Materials is an opportunity for EU policy makers to provide a comprehensive European strategy on the long term and safe access of raw materials, in order to respond to strategic approaches in other world regions, and to ensure a competitive European industry. In this context, the Commission’s flagship initiative for a ‘Resource efficient Europe’ can help to further strengthen the manufacturing basis of the European industry.
The European Automobile Industry, a key player of the European industry, wishes to contribute to the ongoing political discussion on access to raw materials and resource efficiency in a constructive manner. ACEA will therefore address several key issues in this document.
