Guaranteeing a just transition towards renewable energy for all parties

A multi-stakeholder approach to improve the labour conditions in the metals mines

Just transition is a necessary step in securing the availability of extractives in a sustainable way, which influences the metals and renewables supply chain directly. In the Netherlands and EU new (upcoming) legislation on critical minerals and metals will drastically influence the business strategies of companies throughout the supply chain. 


In this side session we will examine partnerships in metals and renewable energy supply chains from the Netherlands, which help make the adjustments towards a sustainable business climate. 

These International Responsible Business Conduct Agreements let companies, governments, and trade unions work together, to improve adverse impacts within the metals supply chain. 

The first collective project from this multistakeholder cooperative initiative is a fact, a good example on how trade unions and companies can achieve maximum impact in due diligence and supply chain management.

CNV Internationaal has been active in the mines in Bolivia, Colombia and Peru to implement Freedom of Association and improve labour conditions, especially occupational health and safety. 

Don’t miss this participative session where multidisciplinary experts will explain the theory, share practical experiences, and answer questions on the topics of OSH, due diligence, just transition, multi-stakeholder approaches and solutions.
