This webinar is organised as part of the Webinar Series Towards a Responsible Supply Chain for Electronics: From Mining to Manufacturingorganised by the Make ICT Fair project, in collaboration with Fair ICT Flanders and supported by KU Leuven SIM2.

Webinar 1: Challenges in the copper supply chain

28th September, 10:00-11:30 (CEST)  |  Registration

The current copper production is facing many challenges. Case studies in Zambia, Bulgaria and Namibia are showing large social and environmental impact. Witnesses  from local communities and monitoring data are showing the achilles heels of the extraction. However copper is highly demanded in current and future technological applications. New technological innovations are available, ready for upscaling but not yet implemented. (How) Can adequate policy drive this change?

Speakers: Linda Scott Jakobsson (Swedwatch), Daniel Popov (CEEBWN) & Xiaohua Sharron Li (KU Leuven). 

Moderator:  Charlotte Christiaens (CATAPA).
