Short description:

‘Green mining’ is an oxymoron that is gaining traction in the European Union. But it pushes a risky narrative about an environmentally destructive sector. That is why it is being actively opposed by 180 civil society organisations and academics. The article briefly presents the results of LOCOMOTION projections on material requirements for renewable technologies.
