Roadmap for a fossil-free mining and mineral industry
Purpose and goal
The aim of the project is that the mining and mineral industry (and possibly the metal producing industry) will contribute to Sweden being fossil-free in 2045. The goal is a roadmap describing how the mining and mineral industry can achieve this by 2045. Sub-objective: Partial reporting on April 1, 2018 which will be presented to the Government Offices. Targeted information about the project and its results including a debate article at project termination.
Structure and implementation
The project is mainly carried out by a working group that has a stakeholder group. A follow-up group will be attached to the project under AP 1. The work is carried out in six work packages:
AP 1: Define delivery until April 1st
AP 2: Define boundaries and a common future image
AP 3: Situation assessment, overview of the challenges and driving forces of the mining industry today
AP 4: Work Planning
AP 5: Impact Assessment
AP 6: Report, communication and dissemination of information
In addition to contributing to Sweden being fossil-free by 2045, the work created from the roadmap is also expected to strengthen the competitiveness of the Swedish mining and mineral industry so that it can continue in a fossil-free society after 2045. Working for a fossil-free industry contributes also to increased energy security by becoming less dependent on fossil fuels.
