Global Witness alongside more than 230 organisations are calling on COP leaders to urgently ensure the exploitation of transition minerals doesn’t undermine a just and equitable energy transition.

COP27 is an important moment for the international community to initiate a real shift in the way minerals are extracted and used, and secure binding commitments to tackle climate change. Failing to put people at the centre of the required energy transition will result in it being both inadequate to tackle the climate crisis, and unjust for the most vulnerable people in the world.
