The clean energy transition and the shift to electric vehicles is increasing the global demand for critical minerals and metals such as lithium, nickel, cobalt, and graphite. The importance of these materials is driving a regulatory agenda that is making manufacturers responsible for the supply chain activity they inherit – downstream companies now have the responsibility for upstream behaviours.
Material supply can be impeded in a number of ways – a mix of geopolitical, economic and climate risks are creating multiple concerns for industry and manufacturing. In order to build resilient and reliable mineral and metal supply, companies must focus on building transparent, traceable and sustainable supply chains.
