The Raw Materials Initiative and the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials are key policies that may contribute decisively to maintaining the competitiveness and sustainability of European industry and, consequently, the maintenance or creation of new jobs, especially in regions that have been affected by restructuring due to globalisation.


The CCMI has valuable experience to share with other stakeholders based on opinions that have been adopted in recent years: tackling the challenges in commodity markets and on raw materials, the processing and exploitation of industrial and mining waste deposits from the EU, secondary raw materials, the Raw Materials Initiative, non-energy mining industry in Europe, supply of raw materials.


Going local in events that will be organised in Spain, Slovakia, Romania and Finland will create the right framework for the committee members to better understand the situation on the ground and the concerns of the local organised civil society.

    Seminar - Vertbois (Liège), Belgium
    The 'Eurovignette Directive' allows Member States to charge heavy lorries for the use of some parts of the European road infrastructure. The proposal to revise this Directive, known as 'Eurovignette II', aims to allow Member States to charge heavy lorries on the basis of 'external costs' of air and noise pollution. The revision of the Directive should enable Member States to better manage traffic on the biggest major roads by allowing a wider variation of toll rates. It also encourages the reinvestment of revenue from the additional charges in projects designed to make transport more environmentally friendly.
