The European Commission today presented its long-postponed raw materials strategy after months of delay. The Greens are expressing concern that, instead of setting out a coherent and focused strategy, the Commission’s approach is too broad and not well defined. Commenting on the strategy, Green MEP Reinhard Bütikofer, the EP draftsperson on the strategy, said:
