Chief Executive Officer

Svemin

Maria Sunér is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Svemin, an organization that represents the Swedish mining and mineral industry.

Svemin focuses on issues related to raw materials, mining, and sustainability. 

Maria Sunér Fleming has been actively involved in discussions around raw materials within the European Union (EU). In September, the EU released an updated list of critical materials, which are essential for modern society and the green transition. For the first time, an action plan accompanies this list, aiming to secure the EU’s raw material supply. Measures include increasing primary raw material extraction within the EU, enhancing recycling, securing imports from non-EU countries, and replacing certain materials in products. The need for responsibly mined primary raw materials remains, especially for addressing climate change and supporting renewable energy technologies.

Svemin welcomes the EU’s focus on raw material issues and the establishment of targets for increased mining production within the EU. However, Svemin advocates for further efforts to remove obstacles related to mining in EU legislation.
