Environmental and Climate Change Risks and Impacts + Extractive Industries


Assessing Water-Related Risks in the Mining Sector

Additional Tags: Research, Resources and Tools

As part of a 3-year grant from Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM), CCSI is working with the Columbia Water Center to develop and benchmark a modeling platform for quantitatively assessing the environmental risks associated with gold and copper mining projects and their resulting financial implications.

Fossil Fuel Companies and Climate Change

Additional Tags: Research, Resources and Tools

CCSI has been exploring what strategies fossil fuel companies have embraced in order to address climate change concerns and what responsible investors could request from fossil fuel companies in order to move towards a decarbonized economy.

A Regulatory, Operational and Commercial Framework for the Utilization of Associated Gas

Additional Tags: Research

CCSI is working to develop a regulatory and operational framework that would unlock the value of the APG that is currently wasted, in order to improve energy efficiency, expand access to energy, and contribute to climate change mitigation, thus promoting sustainable development.

Critical Minerals For Green Technologies

CCSI is researching how the development of green technology could impact the demand for “critical” minerals.

Renewable Power of the Mines

Mine sites that are remote often rely on off-grid ways to generate power, which cost a lot more. Renewable energy could be a cost-reducing solution and CCSI is researching how to leverage demand from mines to deploy renewables in developing countries.

“Stranding” Fossil Fuel Assets Equitably

CCSI is exploring how equity can be taken into account when thinking through the issue of stranding assets.

Influence of the Transport Transformation on Fossil Fuel Demand

Additional Tags: Research

In collaboration with the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership at Cambridge University, this research examines how the shift to electric vehicles (EVs) could be accelerated, and how this transformation may impact fuel demand. We focus on two areas where we have identified gaps in the existing literature. The first focus is on the impact of fleet… read more
