Buoyed by government and private investment, Brazil’s mining sector is going through a significant transition period. Benefiting from a truly green energy matrix, Brazil can be a leader in sustainable mineral production. Its government is aware of the role that mining can play in the country’s economic development and is supporting the industry’s growth in various ways, including the inauguration of an investment fund for critical mineral production and the establishment of the National Fertilizer Plan to drive self-sufficiency. As global demand for sustainably produced critical minerals for the green energy transition booms, the country has all the necessary factors to meet that demand while maintaining its position as a leader in iron ore production.
