As the global economy comes back to life after the coronavirus pandemic the biggest issue of the age looms large for the commodity trading industry: climate change. Ignoring global warming is not an option and to succeed, companies will have to play a part in the shift to cleaner forms of energy. The industry will also have to reflect on a world that has been radically reshaped by Covid-19, a volatile geopolitical backdrop and rapid technological advances which are changing the rules of global trade and bringing greater transparency to markets.
Our 2020 agenda features the industry’s biggest names addressing the issues that matter most at the dawn of the new decade.
