EFG response to Critical Raw Materials Act proposal

In June, EFG has submitted feedback on the proposed text of the European Commission’s Critical Raw Materials Act (CRMA) which was published in March 2023.

EFG welcomes the publication of the CRMA and thanks the Commission for the opportunity to provide feedback.

As a not-for-profit organisation instituted to ensure competent and ethical practice among geoscientists in Europe while representing the profession across the continent, EFG has identified three overarching themes within the pending legislation that the Federation believes should be revised:

  • There is an Insufficient Geology Talent Pool to Meet the Targets Set Forth in the CRMA
  • Revisions Important to Ensuring the European Union can Meet Targets
  • Uphold Our Sustainability and Environmental Justice Standards Worldwide
EFG’s full response to the CRMA proposal is available at the following link.
