About this report
As the world transitions towards net zero emissions, the rapid scale-up of clean energy technologies is expected to boost demand for many minerals and metals, including lithium, nickel, cobalt, graphite, copper, aluminium and rare earth elements. To ensure that supplies are safe, secure, and sustainable enough to support clean energy transitions, governments will need to implement effective policies and regulations to create incentives for companies along the clean energy supply chain.
This new Critical Minerals Policy Tracker therefore highlights prominent policies and regulations already in place around the world to enhance security of supply, incentivise new resource development and ensure sustainable and responsible production.
