Renewable energy production and storage technology are fully reliant on mined materials like copper, aluminium, steel, cobalt, nickel, etc. Scaling renewable energy will place additional pressure on the mining sector to keep up production and at the same time transition to sustainable production practices. This is not just a cost, it also a massive revenue opportunity for mining firms that invest in sustainable practices when consumers can verify the green credentials of the metals they procure by tracing all the way back to the mine itself.


The ability to attach mine origin and sustainability certifications to minerals as they move through the supply chain is a core aspect of Minehub’s platform for the Mining & Metals industry.
