In Part One of our three-part series analysing the minerals behind the green economy, we look at the rise of Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs), Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs), and Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and the minerals they require.
We consider how, as this sector grows, the demand for certain minerals will likely change, and for others stay the same, and what the greening of the automotive sector means for the responsible sourcing of minerals.
The paper is split into two sections:
1. What will change and stay the same, and the impacts changes will have on responsible sourcing and the mineral sector
2. An in-depth look at how 13 individual metals are involved in the shift towards a green economy
