The need for substantially more mineral resources to achieve the green energy transition is a serious challenge that we, the team of Sustainable Management in the Extractive Industries (SUMEX), fully recognize and tackle.
To foster more, yet sustainable mineral production in the EU, SUMEX produces expert knowledge and develops a sustainability framework for the extractive industries. We do so by building on major international agendas such as the Sustainable Development Goals, the European Green Deal, or the EU Social License to Operate considerations.
SUMEX convenes and mobilizes stakeholders in civil society, industry, academia and government backgrounds from all across the EU and beyond. Funded by the European Commission’s H2020 programme (grant agreement nr. 101003622), we are a group of 10 expert organisations across nine countries.
