Read transcript

Mining often happens under poor working conditions, the transport of raw materials is energy intensive and the recycling of used minerals is yet often not profitable and sometimes illudes todays state of the art. In this podcast we want to ask. How is it possible that mineral supply chains can become more sustainable? Are voluntary goals of the industry enough or do they need stronger legislative guidelines?

Moderator Nicolas Martin is welcoming three guests. 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.
