The United Nations Framework Classification of Resources (UNFC), a global standard that supports sustainable and integrated management of energy and raw materials, could support attainment of the objectives of the Deal. (...) A second session will feature expert insights and case studies on the application of UNFC for raw material resource assessment and management. Note to editors About UNFC     UNFC and UNRMS, flagship projects of UNECE, together offer a global tool for understanding and managing the resource base of energy and raw materials. UNFC and UNRMS apply to primary raw material and energy sources such as minerals, petroleum, coal, as well as renewable energies such as bioenergy, geothermal, solar, wind and hydropower.

Companies’ concerns over distortions to trade natural resources For industrial consumers, access to raw materials under non-discriminatory and market-based conditions is crucial for their competitiveness. (...) While not contesting the right of resource-holders to decide on the exploration of natural resources, European industry is concerned about the proliferation of trade distortions in the global market for extracted raw materials. (...) As regards least developed resource-holding countries, authorities and institutions responsible for raw materials management should be strengthened.

Delivering the volumes of critical raw materials needed for batteries will require careful cradle-to-grave management of volumes to ensure efficient primary production and processing and to optimize resource recovery from wastes. (...) This ambition will require a shift to green energy and technologies, based on different resources. We already see the benefit of work at the UN level on a classification framework for resources (UNFC), which we used in the EU to map the raw materials necessary for building battery value chains. (...) Discussions at the ORAMA event underlined that UNFC can be applied at any level to compare and classify primary and secondary raw material resources. Harmonization of raw materials projects across different resource types is essential for decision makers such as governments, as well as operators and investors, to assess and compare projects based not only on economics and feasibility, but also on sustainability and environmental and social impact.

WTO | Publications - Competitive distortions in the access to raw materials for the European chemical industry WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION Home   |  About WTO   |  News & events   |  Trade topics   |  WTO membership   |  Documents & resources   |  External relations Contact us   |  Site map   |  A-Z   |  Search español   français home resources research/analysis wto publications world trade report 2010 article   RESEARCH AND ANALYSIS Competitive distortions in the access to raw materials for the European chemical industry René van Sloten , Executive Director Industrial Policy, European Chemical Industry Council   The issue of fair and secure access to natural resources is of pivotal interest for the European chemical industry as it is highly dependent on access to raw materials and sensitive to artificial distortions in their pricing. (...) Prior to the outbreak of the economic and financial crisis in 2008, there was a sharp increase in demand for industrial goods, so also for raw materials. Although the overheated situation on raw materials market in 2008 has temporarily disappeared owing to the downturn, the issue of access to raw materials remains highly important for European industry. (...) A worrying trend is that countries that are rich in resources increasingly introduce discriminatory practices which limit availability of their raw materials to other markets in order to support their domestic downstream industries.
