Global efforts to advance clean energy and a green economy require conversations about justice, fairness and equity. For this half-day symposium, Indigenous leaders from around the world are joining together to discuss their efforts to advance environmental justice and Indigenous rights. With global supply chains, Silicon Valley clean energy and battery storage initiatives are driving increased demand for mineral production, and are a key part of new conversations about responsible sourcing aligned with environmental justice and human rights.
