Sustainability and Mineral Supply Chains – Trends in the Mining Industry

Jun 28, 2021

In this episode, we take a closer look at mineral supply chains. Mining often happens under poor working conditions, the transport of raw materials is energy intensive and the recycling of used minerals is often not profitable and may actually illude today's state of the art. In this podcast we want to ask: How can mineral supply chains become more sustainable? Are voluntary goals of the industry enough or do they need stronger legislative guidelines? To answer these questions, moderator Nicolas Martin welcomes Christina Saulich and Svenja Schöneich - two global value chain experts at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP) and Jean-Pierre Imbrogiano, a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Economics and Management at the University of Helsinki.
