European conference on green mining and the sustainability of the battery value chain
Deep-Sea Mineral Platform and Report Launched by the World Economic Forum
The next years are critical as regulatory, technology and investment decisions are being made. These decisions could determine the environmental and social impact of deep-sea minerals.
