Leveraging Arctic Resources for a Just Green Transition

The Arctic, with its abundant natural resources, can play a pivotal role in enabling the EU to achieve its net-zero objectives and reshoring their supply chains in a just and sustainable manner. The EU has the CRM Act to facilitate this transition, but what will reshoring supply chains in the Arctic look like? As green industrial projects gain momentum, discussions in impacted communities about the social license to operate have increased. This panel explores how developers can ensure collaborative progress towards the anticipated transition, emphasising fairness and environmental responsibility.
