The EU-Latin America Partnership on Raw Materials project is hosting a yearly webinar series for MDNP members*. Each year, the webinars will address a diverse range of topics that are key to fostering responsible and sustainable non-energy extractive industries in both regions.
The webinars will bring together experts from the EU and Latin America to share their analyses and best practices on the topics. Thus, MDNP members will gain insights into the work being done in both regions on driving responsible mining and building sustainable and resilient mineral raw materials value chains.
All webinars will be translated simultaneously and offer English, Spanish and Portuguese audio channels. All webinars are free of charge.

Governmental entities from other Latin American countries are also eligible as members of the MDNP.
EU-Latin America responsible battery value chains
A secure and responsible supply of battery raw materials is a vital prerequisite for electric mobility and renewable energy, and therefore it plays a key role in achieving a climate-neutral economy. The EU seeks to diversify its sources of battery raw materials and integrate its value chains with Latin American countries. In this context, responsible production and sourcing of these raw materials are paramount. This business-oriented webinar seeks to showcase best practice examples of responsible battery raw materials value chain integration led by EU and Latin America stakeholders.
Webinar registrations will close on Monday, 14 June at 17:00 CEST.
