Ângela Viana (Managing Associate) participates as a speaker in the virtual conference "Reality Check on Responsible Sourcing - Trends, obstacles and opportunities".

The lawyer participated in the panel dedicated to the topic "Chasing Unicorns? How can the mining sector extract responsibly sourced minerals for the green economy?", where she debated the main challenges of this theme.

The Responsible Sourcing (RS) landscape has essentially focused on identifying RS issues and challenges in the extractive sector and has outlined various standards and guidelines to overcome these obstacles. The flip side is the economic, technical and management capacity of the extractive sector to meet these ESG standards, particularly at a time when metals demand projections suggest at a stage when more raw materials are needed to pave the green roadmaps for the renewable energy and e-mobility sectors.
