De-Carbonisation of the European Economy – How This Transforms Mining Industry

In 2012 the European Commission stated the aim of increasing the share of manufacturing in total gross value added from 15.5% at that time to 20% by 2020. In its 2030 Industry Vision, it has committed to boosting the transformation of the industry by stimulating innovation and promised to introduce new policies to ensure that the European industry becomes climate-neutral, circular, and resource-efficient, with reliable access to low carbon energy and raw materials.
