Event description
UNFC Europe: Ensuring sustainable raw materials management to support the European Green Deal

About this Event

Europe’s new growth strategy aims to transform the region into a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy. The grand objective of the European Green Deal is to become net-zero GHG emission by 2050, promote the circular economy and enhance social responsiveness.

The action plan to achieve these objectives in a time-bound manner includes channeling massive investments in green technologies, driving industry innovation, promoting decarbonization, and promoting global partnerships for improved standards.

Sustainable production and use of raw materials, primary and secondary, underpin the successful realization of the objectives of the new Green Deal. Effective management can be implemented if quality data and information on their social environmental- economic viability, technological feasibility and risks are available. Structured and harmonized information could be obtained using the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) and its derivative United Nations Resource Management System (UNRMS).

The workshop will feature perspectives and experiences in the application of UNFC for raw materials management in Europe in two sessions focusing on

(1) Vision and strategy for sustainable raw materials management, and

(2) Case studies on raw materials resource assessment and management.
