According to Sir Mick Davis, Chairman of Vision Blue Resources, a significant shortage of metals and minerals is needed to facilitate the shift toward clean, low-carbon energy. Davis emphasized the company’s role in accelerating the supply of these critical commodities by supporting the responsible development of new sources.
He expressed confidence that VBR’s strategy of accessing critical minerals will continue to attract investment and expand its portfolio. Governments, investors, and industry increasingly recognize the importance of critical minerals in the clean energy transition.
Investing in these commodities is expected to create significant economic opportunities and jobs and help reduce the environmental impact of mining.
The shift to clean energy is creating a huge demand for these minerals, and Vision Blue Resources’ investment in them is a testament to the importance of the transition toward clean energy.
