Position paper

The Non-Energy Extractive Industries Panel (NEEIP) today released a joint position promoting the following two key messages:

  1. The tax on mineral resources is a non-adequate fiscal tool for increasing resource-efficiency.
  2. Tax neutrality is hard to achieve at EU level yet remains a "must" for EU industry's competitiveness.

The NEEIP represents key actors in the Non-Energy Extractive sector, providing minerals that are vital to the EU economy and its sustainable growth as well as a substantial number of jobs across the EU.
