The CRM Alliance has been created by industry to advocate the importance of Critical Raw Materials in Europe and promote our common interests. Supporting the CRM Alliance gives members a number of benefits, like regular information on EU issues affecting CRMs, meeting the policy-makers in the EU and exchanging best practices with other CRM industries.
The CRM Alliance supports a critical materials policy based on 5 key recommendations: CRM policies should look for enhanced raw material supply and use rather than substitution of the CRMs; Industrial Sector Policies should incorporate and highlight the economic and strategic importance of Critical Raw Materials (CRMs) and their value to future innovation; Waste legislation should not include disincentives for usage of CRMs; Legislation affecting CRMs should require a special socio- economic analysis of potentially harmful impacts to the supply of CRMs; and Trade policy should incorporate principles of both free and fair trade for CRMs.
