The ongoing health and economic crises are having a devastating impact on European industry. Measures to slow down the spread of COVID-19, for example, have led to significant disruptions in supply chains. Given the dependency of the European economy on imported raw materials, material supply chains are a potential Achilles heel for European industry in a time of global crisis. This can also have serious consequences for Europe’s quest to become climate-neutral, as set out in the European Green Deal.


The Policy Dialogue will discuss how the EU can access the materials it needs to help make the economy more competitive and climate-neutral whilst also taking into account the impact of the coronavirus crisis on global supply chains. The event will be moderated by Annika Hedberg, Policy Analyst, EPC.
