The signatories represent a broad spectrum of concerns, from the human rights implications of mineral extraction and renewable energy projects, including the disproportionate risks faced by Indigenous Peoples, to safeguarding human rights defenders facing attacks. The letter urges climate action to ensure human rights and social protection, shared prosperity for workers and communities, and resource efficiency and demand reduction for raw materials consumption.
