Region EMEA

The industry has a key part to play in tackling climate change by providing the metals and minerals that will be needed in ever greater quantities in the energy transition. This could lead to an extended period of strong demand that has some Wall Street banks hailing the arrival of a new commodities super cycle. At the same time, mining has suffered a number of setbacks in the last few years from dam disasters to the destruction of sacred sites. How can the industry seize this once in a generation opportunity and grow not only financially but responsibly, while reassuring all its stakeholders, from investors to traditional landowners, that it will not repeat the errors of the past?

This event is part of the world-renowned FT Commodities portfolio of events and brings together the foremost business leaders, policymakers and financiers in the industry. Skillfully moderated by some of our most senior and expert journalists.
