Passcode: GSNSouth

Abstract:
Climate change mitigation will require a significant decrease in the CO2 emissions associated with transport and energy generation. However, the material requirements for this transition are often neglected when developing plans and policy around combating climate change. In reality, moving to a low-CO2 future will require significant (in some cases >500%) increases in production of key minerals and metals beyond the record levels of production the mining industry has already achieved, even if we can also increase the recycling of these commodities. This presentation will outline the mineral requirements for a low CO2 future, why meaningful climate change mitigation will necessarily rely on the raw materials supplied by the minerals industry, and what implications this might have for the future of mining.
