The Future of European-Chinese Raw Material Supply Chains

East Asia and Pacific, EU / Western Europe, Mining, Sustainability standards
When it comes to being supplied with raw materials, Europe faces a number of chal­lenges. These include the diversification of European supply chains, the implementation of effective sustainability standards, and the reduction of strategic dependencies on China. What will European-Chinese raw material supply chains look like in 2030? This paper outlines three possible scenarios, illustrating the combined effects of dif­ferent political and socio-economic developments and the impact they could have on European-Chinese supply chains. It aims to help political actors gain a deeper under­standing of possible future trajectories and map out appropriate policy strategies in response to different scenarios.
