Commodity Markets and Raw Materials Communication

Based on the first Communication on the Raw Materials Initiative published in November 2008, this new strategy document “Tackling the challenges in commodity markets and on raw materials” (COM(2011)25) reports on progress made with the implementation of the RMI. It further pursues and reinforces the 3 pillar-based approach to improving access to Raw Materials for Europe. It also extends the analysis to general commodity markets. This work is also considered part of the Europe 2020 strategy to ensure smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and is closely linked to the flagship initiative for a resource efficient Europe.
