Promoting the importance of Critical Raw Materials to the European Economy

CRM Alliance

The Critical Raw Materials Alliance (CRM Alliance) has been created by industry to advocate the importance of critical raw materials (CRM) for the European economy and to promote a strong European CRM policy. It is the representative body of primary producers, traders and associations of CRMs. Through its membership, the CRM Alliance represents almost all of the 27 listed critical raw materials and we are steadily growing. We also oversee an MEP Interest Group on Critical Raw Materials to connect industry with policy-makers through bi-annual political luncheon events.

Critical Raw Materials play an essential role in the European economy

The CRM Alliance was created by industry to advocate the importance of CRMs for the European economy and to promote a strong European CRM policy. It is a representative body of primary producers, traders and associations of CRMs and an observer at the European Commission. 

Critical Raw Materials are the building blocks of our modern society. These materials are used in a wide range of commercial, government and life-saving technologies and hold the key to many future applications. CRMs will move ideas from research to products in commerce. 

In order to promote the importance of critical raw materials to policy-makers, the CRM Alliance organises bi-annual political luncheon events to discuss the issues affecting the CRM industry. Our members directly express concerns to European and international policy-makers.
