WEBINAR: Raw Materials for the Green Economy: How the EU and US Can Work Together

The world is transitioning from an economy fueled by oil to an economy fueled by raw materials. This poses the twin challenge of the global need to re-industrialize and the need for the transition to be sustainable with high environmental standards and transparency.

On November 11th, SAFE’s Center for Critical Minerals Strategy and Transport & Environment hosted a lively discussion about how the United States and the European Union plan to make this energy leap while striving to work together to create an electrified future. Placed in a real-world policy context, discussed were issues ranging from responsible mining practices to the need for energy permitting reform.

Participants included:

  • Remarks from Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV
  • Remarks from Hildegard Bentele, European Member of Parliament
  • Steve Feldgus, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management, U.S. Department of the Interior
