In the previous two sessions we delved into topics such as green mining, Critical Raw Materials and the geopolitics of their future supply.
Now we’re moving the conversation on to our global green energy transition – that’s hurtling ahead at such velocity, as countries strive to extrapolate themselves from their carbon dependency.
In this episode of Material:Matters, Tessa Parry-Wingfield chats to Arash Duero – a Principal at Bingmann Pflüger International – global strategic advisers – who has specialisms in the political and economic dimensions of natural resources.
