Details

As the world shifts to cleaner forms of energy, the natural resources industry is facing a period of dramatic change that will disrupt markets and challenge long-held assumptions. It will have to do this at a time of heightened geopolitical tension and rapid technological change that is transforming the way business is done. But the commodities industry has always been quick to adapt to new trends and this time will be no different. For those companies that are able to identify the powerful forces shaping supply and demand for raw materials and foodstuffs - huge opportunities lie ahead.

Now in its eighth year, the FT Commodities Global Summit has established itself as the pre-eminent gathering of senior commodity executives, traders and financiers. This year's Summit will feature some of the biggest names speaking on the trends that matter most in natural resources.
