How the European Arctic secures the European Green Deal and industrial leadership with sustainable raw materials and batteries

Towards a climate neutral supply of crucial raw materials for a successful European Green Deal.

Over half of Europe’s most critical mineral and metals are found in the European Arctic of Sweden and Finland. The competence and capability through the whole value chain from raw material extraction, battery production, recycling and re-use of raw materials makes this region the most advanced and valuable ecosystem for sustainable mining in Europe, crucial in realizing the European Green Deal.

On March 17, Svemin, Swedish Association of Mines, Mineral and Metal Producers, FinnMin, the Finnish Mining Association, North Sweden European Office and Region Västerbotten invite you to a webinar in three sessions: mineral extraction, battery production and recycling.
