Imagining the metals value chains of the future

How can we promote circularity in the supply of metals and minerals? This workshop will bring together stakeholders from inside and outside metals value chains to develop creative solutions to the supply of these key materials.    

Time: Friday 2 June, 09:30–11:30 EEST (UTC+3)
Place: Messukeskus Helsinki, room 207, Messuaukio 1, Helsinki   

The energy transition is built on metals, with many low carbon technologies needing vast quantities of metals and minerals. All parts of the metals value chains need to collaborate to ensure that they are as circular as possible, from mining and refining to use and reuse.  

In this highly interactive workshop, we will focus on key value chains to develop, test and reimagine opportunities. The session will bring together those working within metals value chains, including miners and users of metals such as automotive and technology companies, with a broader set of stakeholders including circular economy thought leaders, policymakers, investors and experts from other industries to ensure that we are not siloed in our thinking.  

The session will contribute directly to work being carried out by ICMM and Circle Economy, to be released in 2024.   

Organisers: Circle Economy, Columbia Center for Sustainable Investment (CCSI) and ICMM
