The summit's mission
Changing the way we see, and use, raw materials

The Raw Materials Summit is a call-to-action – a platform – for industry leaders, educators and innovative new talent to share their vision for a sustainable raw materials future. We aim to raise awareness of the critical role of raw materials, exchange knowledge and break down the barriers that delay sustainable value chains. Our Summit offers unique opportunities for investment in an atmosphere designed for collaboration.

We know what needs to be done – the transition to clean energy means changing how we identify, source, use and re-use raw materials. We are all dependent on a sustainable raw materials supply and need to play an active role in the creation and maintenance of a responsible raw materials sector.

The time to commit is now. When we create sustainable raw material sources, we create energy security and enable digital transitions that will boost Europe’s competitive edge. Join us.

The 6th edition of the Raw Materials Summit will feature topics such as:
  • Critical Raw Materials Act (CRMA) and its impact
  • Raw Materials Academy and our future workforce
  • Changes to supply, demand and the latest trade policies
  • Electrification through renewables - and nuclear      
  • Heightening mineral security for defense & space     
  • Three nations present minerals investment plans    
  • Looking beyond the EU’s existing strategic ties          
  • Responsible sourcing for the automotive sector      
  • The steel industry’s race to net zero       
  • Reputation management and mineral transparency
