UK Critical Minerals Strategy
This is the UK’s first-ever critical minerals strategy that aims to improve the security of supply of critical minerals.
Modern society relies on critical minerals – from phones to wind turbines, from cars to fighter jets. A new cohort of critical minerals are becoming even more important as we seek to bolster our energy security and domestic industrial resilience – in light of Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine – and as we move away from volatile, expensive fossil fuels.
‘Resilience for the future: the UK’s critical minerals strategy’ sets out the government’s plans for improving the resilience of critical minerals supply chains and increasing our security of supply.
Through this strategy, the UK will:
accelerate growth of the UK’s domestic capabilities
collaborate with international partners
enhance international markets to make them more responsive, transparent and responsible
