Trade Finance TV: Mining tomorrow’s energy infrastructure

A secure and orderly clean energy transition means access to key minerals and metals and ongoing investment in oil and gas. It can’t just stop because of everyone’s net zero pledges. Returning to Trade Finance TV are commodities experts Julian Kettle and Yann Ropers to explain this complicated pathway.

Kettle says that, for metals and mining corporates, “there is simply not enough free cashflow to distribute dividends, decarbonise themselves and deliver the growth”. And Ropers sees metals and minerals investment as a collective responsibility where banks and financial institutions can help, “despite the complexity of financing metals and that those markets are more volatile than those of oil and gas”.
