Global leaders are calling for the acceleration of the journey to net zero, and new and ever-changing policy is leading the charge. At its heart, is a green industrial revolution focused on lowering emissions, transitioning to clean energy and sustainable production.

The Paris Agreement on climate change was unprecedented in its goal to keep the global temperature rise this century to well below 2°C. The UN climate convention (COP 26) is the next milestone. It is likely to spur action that alters markets, regulation and operations.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has said that a failure to limit global warming through early and orderly policy action, will result in an increased frequency of extreme weather events. The commodity industry is familiar with the challenges of both water scarcity and flooding.

We can help frame these challenges in the context of risk management through scenario planning and provide analysis to support your decision making under uncertainty.

As the world prioritises sustainability, the challenge placed on the commodity industry is significant. To remain competitive, companies, financial institutions and governments will need to act. The priorities are to quickly understand and even predict the changes to policy and regulation, and to have access to high-quality data and independent expertise on the decisions you face.

“What does the Paris Agreement mean for my business?”

The path to net zero will be enabled by changes in financial markets, production and technology, but shaped by government policies and regulation.
