The commodities market has provided many opportunities for investors that have stood the test of time. But the market – and the world – is changing. The climate emergency has placed growing emphasis on the need to move towards ‘greener’ materials and ways of generating electricity, and geopolitical tensions and war has created supply-chain issues that show no sign of slowing down.

Join host and Bloomberg columnist Merryn Somerset Webb and a formidable line-up of experts for an exclusive round-table discussion.

Panel:
