Energy Transition Metals & Minerals – How Can The African Mining Sector Ensure Security of Supply?

The Energy Transition represents a monumental transformation of the global economy and metals and mined commodities are a key enabler of change. Without the extraordinary expansion of new metals supply, the transition will not unfold. But new supply sources will also bring  sustainability issues of their own. For suppliers and investors, the pace of change is unknown, but the opportunities are clear – and yet investment in mining is still to respond in earnest. What can be done to ensure sufficient supply while meeting the broader sustainability goals of the Paris Agreement?
