Fireside chat - Critical Minerals: The Bedrock of a Green Future?

In the journey towards a sustainable future, critical minerals are the cornerstone of green transition: from wind turbines and electrical grids to electric vehicles. This long-term shift, however, is laden with challenges from both demand and supply side. As the green transition spans decades with significant impact on the society and environment, its success also hinges on the mining industry’s ongoing evolution of its social and environmental practices. How can companies balance meeting the growing demand for energy transition minerals with responsible E&S practices? What is the role of investors in paving the way to a sustainable and responsible mining practices while tapping on new opportunities?
