By approving this act with an overwhelming majority of 515 votes in favor and 34 against, the European Parliament seeks to decrease its reliance on a single country for more than 65% of any strategic raw material by 2030 The details of this act will now undergo negotiations between the parliament and the council

Nicola Beer, a German MEP from the liberal Renew Europe group, who was responsible for the proposal, expressed that the European Parliament has taken a clear stance on the security of supply, emphasizing the path towards European sovereignty and competitiveness
