Is sustainability another cost the commodity trading world must face or does it present one of the biggest opportunities for the sector over the next decade – bringing new products, new markets and new points of differentiation? And if investors, financiers and customers demand it, can participants afford to ignore it?
On November 10, 2020, Paul Chapman hosted a panel at the Reuters Commodity Trading Summit focused on sustainability and profitability in commodities trading. On the panel were Matthew Chamberlain, CEO of the London Metals Exchange and Andrew Lichter, VP Corporate Development and Strategy at the Mobius Risk Group. The panel discussed whether we need new products to capture sustainability attributes, how to build trust and track these products and what are the commercial drivers, the hurdles and opportunities for the commodities sector itself.
