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 20 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 is composed of trade associations and companies representing substances that are defined as "critical" by the European Commission or are considered to be defined as such in the future
