Global Sea Mineral Resources is the deep-sea exploratory division of the DEME Group. Using its 140 years of  know-how, DEME is helping to address pressing global challenges, including  climate  change, rising sea levels, and the transition to renewable energy.

The climate and biodiversity crises are coinciding with a massive increase in global population. Decarbonising a rapidly urbanising planet will require huge amounts of primary metal. This in turn will add to the carbon budget and impact biodiversity. Therefore, the problem is also the solution (hence the Paradox), however, different solutions have different implications. Society needs to confront this reality so that these metals can be sourced responsibly, for the benefit of us all.

Speaker: Kris van Nijen, Managing Director Global Sea Mineral Resources at DEME
