ABB joins Euromines to contribute to dialogue with EU governments and authorities on sustainable mining

  • European Association of Mining Industries (Euromines) has welcomed technology leader ABB as a member
  • ABB business leaders will contribute to the promotion and consideration of responsible industry practices in EU policy making

Technology leader ABB has joined the European Association of Mining Industries (Euromines), the recognized representative of the European metals and minerals mining industry. Its main objectives are to promote responsible industry practices and engage with EU institutions on mining-related policy matters. Euromines also promotes the benefit and value of both the products and the industry to society, which are critical to boosting European competitiveness.

Euromines serves as a cooperative network of members focused on sharing responsible raw material mining practices. It also evaluates the impact of European and international policies and legislation on the industry and defines industry policy positions and actions. It represents large and small companies and subsidiaries in Europe and in other parts of the world. It has recently launched the Sustainable Mining Initiative in which members share insights on circular economy, nature restoration, decarbonization and community.

ABB business leaders will contribute to the association’s efforts to improve responsible mining in Europe and provide examples of how innovative technologies for the processing of raw materials have been developed by ABB or in collaboration with customers.
