Abstract

Global Governance 24 (2018), 81–102 Exploring the Role of Alternative Energy Corporations in Ethical Supply Chains and Corporate Peacebuilding Natalie Ralph and Linda Hancock A paradigmatic shift from carbon-intensive to alternative and renewable energy prompts the question of whether lessons learned in one era are forgotten in the next. Carbon-intensive industries (oil, gas, and coal) have not performed well on mitigating negative impacts on host com- munity conflict, but alternative energy corporate actors can learn from them. Focusing on alternative energy companies, and specifically com- panies in supply chains for new-generation lithium-ion battery systems, this article illustrates companies’ connections to conflict minerals and critical materials, and how a corporate peacebuilding strategy can address a company’s impacts on conflict whether on the ground or through the supply chain.
