Raw Materials Scoreboard 2018

The Raw Materials Scoreboard (henceforth ‘RM Scoreboard’), a cornerstone of the European Union Raw Materials Knowledge Base (EURMKB) and an integral and permanent part of the Raw Materials Information System, is published every two years. This section presents the content of the second (2018) edition. The RM Scoreboard is an initiative of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Raw Materials that provides relevant and reliable monitoring information to governments, industry, and other stakeholders about the main challenges to a secure and sustainable supply of raw materials to the EU. It is a joint collaboration of DG Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs and the Commission’s Joint Research Centre. The 2018 edition of the RM Scoreboard consists of 26 indicators grouped into five thematic clusters (Figure 1): (1) raw materials in the global context, (2) competitiveness & innovation, (3) framework conditions for mining, (4) circular economy and recycling, and (5) environmental and social sustainability.
