Climate change is an undeniable and critical global challenge and its causes must be addressed by everybody as inaction is no longer an option. Transitioning to a low-carbon economy and achieving the EU climate targets will require large amounts of resources and efforts. The European magnesia sector recognizes the need to respond to this challenge and is committed to take the necessary measures to ensure that it is part of the solution.

Provider of main primary raw materials for several value chains such as steel, agriculture, paper, cement, ceramics, rubber and plastics, glass, pharmaceuticals, the European magnesia industry is a strategic supplier generating value added through employment, economic growth, development, innovation and trade. Hence, our sector is committed to engage along the value chain to ensure that climate change risks are adequately taken into consideration, decarbonisation actions are adopted and implemented and emissions are mitigated and reduced.

The European mineral raw materials industry contributes to sustainable development by integrating economic growth with environmental protection, social progress and effective governance. The UN laid out a sustainable development agenda to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Euromines supports these goals and is committing to working toward their fulfillment. Have a look and explore how the European mineral raw materials industry enabling the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The Circular Economy should yield optimum solutions to the trade-offs that exist between different environmental objectives and the environmental, social and economic imperatives of Sustainable Development. The result should be an economy that optimises its use of resources and, therefore, results in improved living conditions and reduced waste globally. The European extractive industries fully support the premise that life cycle management approaches are required to describe and monitor Resource Efficiency.
