The United States' Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the European Union's Green Deal Industrial Plan (GDIP) are historical pieces of legislation aimed to rapidly decarbonize the U.S. and EU economies, with a strong emphasis on the role of industrial decarbonization in achieving Paris Agreement targets. Critical minerals are of immense importance within this conversation. As a key component to many green technologies, ensuring safe, sustainable, and secure supply chains for these minerals is critical to the global energy transition.

In light of the IRA and the GDIP, the U.S. and EU have the opportunity to develop transatlantic engagement with third countries on critical minerals that can catalyze green, local value chains in partner countries, avoid extractivism and labor abuses, and enable those countries’ green transitions, all while pursuing diversified, strong, and secure critical mineral supply chains.
