Horizons Live: red metal, green demand

Copper's critical role in achieving net zero

1 minute read

The road to zero carbon will see an extraordinary build out of low carbon electric vehicles (EVs) and renewable power generating capacity. And as the world reduces its dependence on hydrocarbons, metals will be a linchpin of a zero carbon economy. Copper – in the form of wire, cable and foil – will bind and connect the batteries, motors and electrical networks that will help limit the rise in global temperatures.

Julian Kettle, Senior Vice President, Vice Chair of Metals and Mining hosts this edition’s Horizons Live alongside Nick Pickens, Research Director and Bhavya Laul, Principal Analyst.


Watch on demand as our panel discuss how the pull on the world’s resources to achieve this structural change will be transformational, dwarfing the demand increases we have seen over the past 30 years.
