Panel

Fostering Global Cooperation on Responsible Critical Minerals

Protecting the planet and the people 

The production and processing of critical minerals essential to the energy transition are geographically concentrated in a limited number of countries, making supply chains more fragile in the event of a crisis. The context of rising geopolitical tensions and the multiplication of protectionist measures regarding critical minerals reduce our collective capacity to ensure the energy transition. This panel will examine how to foster cooperation in the common interest, and what instruments could be put in place to decrease the risk of conflict and tension around critical minerals.
