EFG is a professional organisation whose main aims are to contribute to a safer and more sustainable use of the natural environment, to protect and inform the public and to promote a more responsible exploitation of natural resources.

EFG’s members are National Associations, NAs, whose principal objectives are based in similar aims. The guidelines to achieve these aims are the promotion of excellence in the application of geology and the creation of public awareness of the importance of geoscience for the society.

EFG as one of the founding members of PERC is therefore considered to be a Recognised Professional Organisation (RPO) enabling European Geologists to qualify as Competent Persons if they can prove the necessary competence. PERC is the organisation responsible for setting standards for public reporting of exploration results, mineral resources, and mineral reserves by companies listed on markets in Europe. As a member of CRIRSCO, the PERC Reporting Standard is fully aligned with the CRIRSCO Reporting Template.
