Financing ESG Transition

It has been two years since Trade Finance TV went on location to Amsterdam, covering the annual TXF Global Commodity Trade Finance event.

Over that time, the oil price plunged to a low that took WTI into negative territory (–US$39.55/bbl), and commodity prices have surged back up again, prompting much talk of whether we are on the cusp of another supercycle.

Covid-19 has dislocated supply chains and provenance of commodities is more important than ever, as investors and lenders prioritise those organisations committed to transforming their business models to align with environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles.

How has all of this reshaped the commodities ecosystem? Reputational risk – particularly that of not being ESG aligned – is something everyone in the market is focused on right now. In addition, how should those producers seeking to transition from “brown” to “green” be supported as they move towards net zero?

Joining us in our own Trade Finance TV Virtual studio to explain more about what this means, Trade Finance TV welcomes Deutsche Bank’s Sandra Primiero and Willem Calame from the Natural Resources Finance team. Do join us to hear their insights!
