Scenes from the FT Live Commodities Global Summit 2023

“A lot of the companies that have traditionally been on the stage talking about oil markets or gas markets were instead talking about carbon emissions or their hydrogen strategy. And I think that’s going to continue to be a theme in the coming years.”
Leslie Hook, Natural Resources Editor at The Financial Times

This week, we present a special episode of SmarterMarkets™, bringing you exclusive interviews from last month’s FT Live Commodities Global Summit in Lausanne, Switzerland. SmarterMarkets™ host David Greely attended the summit and worked with the Financial Times to record interviews from this gathering of commodity experts, practitioners, and trading houses.

The Financial Times’ Natural Resources Editor, Leslie Hook, provides an introduction to this special release, with guest appearances from Goldman Sachs’ Jeff Currie, RBC Capital Markets’ Helima Croft, Vitol’s Michael Curran, International Emissions Trading Association’s Alasdair Were and Joe Raia of Abaxx Exchange.

Throughout the interviews featured in this special episode, host David Greely sits down with these guests to examine the future of carbon markets and climate action, the under-appreciated risks to our commodity markets ecosystem, balancing critical mineral supply and demand, the need for clear regulatory messaging from governments, and energy security amidst a changing geopolitical landscape.
