EU Raw Materials Scoreboard and the Circular Economy Report

We are pleased to present this second edition of the Raw Materials Scoreboard. It traces the work of the EIP on Raw Materials in the run-up to 2020 and marks 10 years since the Raw Materials Initiative of 2008.

1. Raw Materials Scoreboard. The Scoreboard is part of the EU’s raw material knowledge base, as is the Raw Materials Information System 2.0,which was launched in November 2017. It is a key interface between the community and governance needs,providing information on materials, trade, and research in greater detail than the Scoreboard. In both projects, the two Commission departments responsible for the Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, and for the Commission’s Science and Knowledge Service, the Joint Research Centre, are working together on the EU’s raw materials knowledge base and making this knowledge available to the public.
We are pleased to present this second edition of the Raw Materials Scoreboard. It traces the work of the EIP on Raw Materials in the run-up to 2020 and marks 10 years since the Raw Materials Initiative of 2008. The Scoreboard maps developments since the last edition in 2016 and provides insights on the EU’s secure and sustainable supply of raw materials. Lastly, it shows the importance of raw materials for EU policy in a variety of areas, including industrial competitiveness, environmental protection, trade, research and social development.

Report on Circular Economy and CRM. This report has been produced under the Action Plan on Circular Economy (see Section 1.2.1) in which the Commission set out to issue a report on critical raw materials and the circular economy in 2017, in order to ensure a coherent and effective approach, provide key data sources, promote best practices and identifypossible further actions.
The report should be seen in the context of the political priorities of the Commission – especially relevant are the priorities on jobs, growth and investment, Energy Union and climate, the internal market, trade policyand global efforts on sustainable development. More specifically, it supports implementation of the renewed EU Industrial Policy Strategy1 presented by President Juncker in his State of the Union Address 2017. The renewed strategy highlights the importanceof adapting to changes brought on by the transition to a low-carbon and more circular economy, as well as the strategic importance of raw materials for the EU manufacturing industry.
Contribution of countries accounting for largest share of supply of primary CRMs to the EU, average from 2010-2014
