Short circuits: exploring the broken links of mineral supply chain policies

Rainforest Foundation Norway (RFN) and AidEnvironment released the report “Short circuits: exploring the broken links of mineral supply chain policies”. The report examines the due diligence policies and practices of key players in the electric vehicle (EV) industry.

The report found a disturbing lack of commitments on deforestation in mineral supply chains across EV battery producers and automakers alike and identified ‘broken links’ between automakers’ and battery manufacturers’ policies.

The report found the automakers that do have deforestation commitments source batteries from battery manufacturers that do not have commitments around deforestation or biodiversity, undermining the automakers’ commitments on deforestation and climate.
