As the world moves towards cleaner sources of energy, demand for minerals is growing exponentially. The mining sector has a critical role to ensure that the energy transition is sustainable and just. Low-carbon technologies in power generation and in transport require a higher level of mineral inputs than their fossil-fuel based versions. This includes notable minerals like cobalt, copper, lithium, nickel and rare earths among others.
