On March 8, 2012 Euromines has released its Annual Report 2011.
For European mining the year 2011 was a good one, but the industry still faced challenges due to the uncertain economic climate. The extractive industry exists for the effective transformation of natural resources into working assets. It is therefore right that European citizens should understand how their minerals industries contribute to their basic needs and maintain their quality of life.
Euromines Annual Report 2011 tries to highlight the “services” the industry provides to the society. Once again Euromines is trying to stress the fact that minerals and metals represent the basis for our lives and any industrial production processes.
Other chapters of the Annual Report cover the latest development in the competitiveness and resource efficiency issues. As each year the report provides an update on the environmental and health & safety legislation as well as Euromines activities related to these issues. The last two parts focus on communication and outlook.
