The CMAA benefits from the wider international network of domestic associations, including the Critical Minerals Association United Kingdom, Critical Minerals Association United States of America, and Canadian Critical Minerals and Materials Alliance that fall under the Critical Minerals International Alliance (CMIA) umbrella.
While the CMAA is fully independent and its Australian members set the agenda, the CMAA benefits from the experience and track record of its sister associations, as well as extensive government relationships across the globe.
The CMIA aims to bridge the gap between Western nations and industry attempting to navigate complex and monopolised supply chains. The CMIA's motto is "outcome, not output" as we aim to create the resilient, secure, low-carbon, responsible critical minerals supply chains of the future.
This requires a collaborative and proactive approach to ensure that like-minded nations remove obstacles and pave the way for industry to innovate and find solutions to mitigate the effects of the forecasted shortfall in extracted critical minerals available for the manufacture of goods.
CMA UK unites the UK Government, industry, academia and other actors in support of the UK’s critical mineral sector. The CMA UK is the secretariat for the UK All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Critical Minerals.
The CMA USA will focus on promoting its members' interests at both State and Federal governments to enable the creation of secure and profitable made-in-America supply chains.
C2M2A is an independent non-profit organisation which endeavours to grow the Canadian economy through critical minerals supply chains.
