Study on EU Needs with Regard to Cooperation with Greenland
Client: DG ENTR
In the context of the EU Raw Materials Initiative (RMI) (a strategy aimed at promoting a sustainable supply of raw materials for the EU, in June 2012), the European Commission and Greenland agreed to cooperate in order to: improve Greenland’s knowledge of and capacity to manage and exploit its mineral wealth, and promote the EU’s sustainable access to these materials.
The purpose of this contract, therefore, is to carry out an in-depth analysis of EU needs with regard to the cooperation with Greenland and to identify a cooperation concept with concrete projects for this foreseen venture.
In addition to leading and coordinating this project, Milieu is responsible for analysing risks posed by greater extraction on the environment and risks in terms of development. Milieu is also set to identify and assess policy options for the EU.
