Press Release

Jan Moström, President and CEO of LKAB Europe's largest, and globally the most sustainable iron ore producer, is to be the new President of Euromines from 1 January 2023.

‚ÄúEurope is at a crossroads and needs to urgently take the right decisions.

The European mining industry is always prepared to contribute to the supply of sustainable raw materials. We are therefore looking forward to next year, when the EU will define fundamental legislation in the forthcoming Critical Raw Materials Act that will shape the future of our industry‚ÄĚ, says Jan Mostr√∂m as he enters as President of Euromines.

EU Critical Raw Materials Act - Euromines policy requests

General News

Euromines very much welcomes the Commission’s initiative to address the paramount issue of securing the necessary raw materials supply for essential value chains and the green and digital transition. We support the multi-pronged approach as proposed in the Inception Impact Assessment of securing access to raw materials via diversification of raw materials through trading relationships as well as an increased emphasis to develop own resources and mining projects in the context of an open strategic autonomy.

To ensure and increase the domestic supply of strategically important raw materials, we believe that facilitation through guidance and incentivization to expand and open mining operations in Europe, paired with a level playing field in state aid provisions for environment and climate protection costs throughout the mining value chain from exploration to processing is needed.
