Sustainability and mining - the green revolution paradox
Metals are considered essential to support the “green revolution”, but this demand poses a number of key questions for the mining industry which produces them:
- Can “green technology” be considered green, if it depends on materials which have not been produced sustainably?
- What work has the mining industry already done to address these issues, and what more does it need to do to change its reputation? What is the tipping point at which mining can be considered sustainable?
- Why are some countries lobbying against the mining industry?
- How much does the ‘green revolution’ rely on mining? And is it possible to meet this demand?
- What infrastructure and technology are required for a sustainable planet?
