Fair minerals for green technologies

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

Germany - Green technologies such as wind power, solar energy and electro-mobility are the basis for achieving the international community's goal of limiting global warming to well below two degrees Celsius. However, low-carbon technologies require a variety of raw materials that are often associated with social and environmental problems.

Against this background, the Berlin NGO Facing Finance is publishing a new, 58-page study that highlights in particular the contribution of the financial sector to the implementation of supply chain responsibility in green technologies. The study does not question the necessity and urgency of energy and mobility reversals. Instead, it should make a contribution to shaping the transition to low-carbon technologies in all its aspects, to identify responsibilities and to involve all relevant stakeholders.

The study is part of the Facing Finance-coordinated Fair Finance Guide Germany project, which is funded by the Swedish development agency Sida and the Foundation for Environment and Development.
