Sacrifice zones for sustainability? Green extractivism and the struggle for a just transition
Published by: EEB

This report presents a series of case studies examining the upstream segment of critical raw materials supply chains. It aims to investigate the impact of the EU’s promotion of “green extractivism” through policies centred on “clean energy” and “economic growth.” The study seeks to understand how such promotion impacts livelihoods, communities (including indigenous communities), ecosystems, and narratives associated with the energy transition.
