Paving the way for green mining
Reducing the ecological impact of mining activities is a key priority for the EU. Ensuring sustainable mineral production requires stakeholders from industry, government, academia and civil society from across the EU to join forces. The EU-funded SUMEX project will develop a sustainability framework for the extractive industry in Europe. The framework will apply across the extractive value chain to analyse the mineral as well as relevant economic, environmental and social policy frameworks of the EU and its Member States, as well as selected regions. The focus will be on socioeconomic and environmental impact assessments, land use planning, health and safety, reporting official statistics, and permitting processes and policy integration.
