Core vs Critical Metals: Industry and Policymakers' Perspectives and Strategic Insights at CRU Breakfast 2023
CRU Breakfast 2023 was designed to offer a comprehensive understanding of the core and critical commodities, assessing their potential impacts on the global economy, and evaluating their role in the current Energy Transition.
This year CRU experts explored the strategic outlook, medium-term, and long-term perspectives of global commodity markets.
Session 1: Core vs Critical Metals
The opening session included two presentations from our CRU experts presenting the case for "core" and "critical" metals. This set the stage for a follow-up discussion involving Jaguar Land Rover and European Commission representatives, who shared their views on the industry's focus and their responsive actions, examining the potentially transformative impact of energy transition versus traditional demand drivers in the mining industry.
Join CRU experts, European Commission and Jaguar Land Rover representatives in a discussion covering:
• CRU's in-depth definition of criticality;
• Debates and potential impacts of labeling Copper as a critical material;
• European Commission’s view on the EU’s Critical Raw Materials Act and its potential supply chain effects;
• Jaguar Land Rover’s strategic approach to sourcing critical materials for future vehicle production.
