Exploring innovative models, enabling risk-informed decision-making and fostering new collaboration to de-risk and redesign responsible mineral value chains

Risk in the eye of the beholder

As a variety of actors and stakeholders focus on risk in mineral value chains, from geostrategic positions to operational interdependencies and (mis?)alignment of interests, this conference will focus on threats and opportunities for the extraction, production and consumption of raw materials. We will discuss what is evolving and what remains unchallenged, misunderstood or under-explored in this landscape.

Innovating for new resilience

Following previous editions on Responsibility, the ESG Toolbox, the Just Transition and the Criticality of Trust, this fifth Responsible Raw Materials online conference will spotlight forward-looking redesign ideas for the businesses, linkages and operations that make up mineral value chains, We will discuss how these new models can mitigate threats, realise opportunities and connect with one another to create new systems for resilience, sustainability and shared benefits.
