In this paper, we identify which global value chain (GVC) made intensive use of minerals between 2005 and 2015. Input-output analysis instruments, complemented with network theory algorithms, are used for this purpose. We also describe, under the weak and strong sustainability approach, the mechanisms of resource rent capture and distribution used in the Pacific Alliance countries, as well as the creation of environmental laws, which governments have been forced to implement given the extractive boom of the 1990s and the first decade of this century.
