    EU-Latin America Convention on Raw Materials

    2:30 pm

    In the face of climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic, mining and related industries are undergoing unprecedented changes. Never before has the pressure for sustainable production and resilient supply chains been so strong. With its European Green Deal, the EU strives to build a digital and net-zero economy and its Action Plan on Critical Raw Materials aims to ensure access to minerals for key industrial ecosystems such as renewable energy, e-mobility, and digital innovation. The pandemic has highlighted the need of building integrated, sustainable and transparent value chains, from mine to consumers.

    The EU-Latin America Convention on Raw Materials will deliver insights on sustainability in minerals-based value chains between the EU and Latin America. It offers a space for jointly charting pathways towards building resilient value chains between the EU and Latin America based on sustainable and responsible mining practices.

    Starting with a high-level political event on the first day, the Conference will offer a programme of key thematic sessions during the second day. Networking opportunities including a virtual poster session will be organised to facilitate contacts and exchange among participants.

    Simultaneous interpretation for participants in English, Spanish and Portuguese will be available both days except for the networking event. The event is free of charge.

    Registration is open and available until 23rd November 2021.
