The CRM Alliance is honoured to present its upcoming CRM Day dedicated to

Sustainable Policy for Critical Raw Materials

CRMs are pivotal in the global race for innovation and competitiveness. More and more used as strategic assets, our speakers will explore how to achieve a more optimal regulatory approach towards CRMs to reduce dependency and foster EU industry champions


About Us                                                                                                                                          



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.
