SUMEX - a sustainability framework for the extractive industry in Europe

The SUMEX project aims to establish a sustainability framework for the extractive industry in Europe, with the involvement of stakeholders from civil society, academia, industry and government backgrounds from all across the EU. To foster more, but sustainable mineral production in the EU, SUMEX will establish a sustainability framework for the extractive industries in Europe, by considering the Sustainable Development Goals, the European Green Deal, as well as EU Social License to Operate considerations. This framework is then applied across the extractives value chain to analyse the mineral, as well as relevant economic, environmental and social policy frameworks of the EU, member states and selected regions along five focus areas – socio-economic and environmental impact assessments, land use planning, health and safety, reporting official statistics and permitting processes/policy integration – to find, or develop, where needed, good practices or tools for an open access toolkit.
