IEA (2023), Critical Minerals Policy Tracker, IEA, Paris https://www.iea.org/data-and-statistics/data-tools/critical-minerals-policy-tracker
Building on the IEA’s landmark report The Role of Critical Minerals in Clean Energy Transitions, this Critical Minerals Policy Tracker is intended as a tool to help governments explore existing and new critical mineral policies in the three key policy areas of:
- Ensuring supply reliability and resiliency.
- Promoting exploration, production and innovation.
- Encouraging sustainable and responsible practices.
Since its launch in November 2022 covering 25 countries and 200 policies, the Tracker has expanded to include over 35 countries and 450 polices, with the expansion focusing on the third policy area on reducing environmental, social and governance impacts. Though not exhaustive, it aims to offer a valuable overview of evolving mineral supply chain governance. Updated yearly.
- For feedback, suggestions, or to report inconsistencies, contact CMWP@iea.org.
This table reflects entries in the IEA Policies Database. We welcome feedback from jurisdictions regarding any updates to existing policies or on additional policies that are missing from the database.
