Why take action?

Prepare for a rapidly changing market

To meet our urgent global climate goals and reach net-zero by 2050, it’s critical to decarbonize commodity supply chains.

To help get there — and to tackle black boxes of unknown risks — commodity traders need to measure and manage their supply chain emissions.

The transition to a net-zero economy is already underway. As the biggest emitters on the planet, the extractive and agriculture industries are at the highest risk of disruption, facing significant regulatory, financial and reputational risks.

Shocks in one area of the commodity value chain have a knock-on effect throughout. To prepare and stay resilient in the net-zero transition, commodity traders need to take responsibility for their supply chain emissions from end to end.

Access to trade finance

Banks are increasing the cost of capital for carbon-intensive business, with higher loan interest rates for high-carbon trades. As climate legislation and portfolio net-zero targets in the finance sector increase, traders need to demonstrate awareness and action on carbon risks.

The cost of carbon

Commodity trading faces major risks with the spread of carbon regulation, the rising price of carbon, and a potential sharp decline in extraction and production — from stranded assets to a hike in the cost of business-as-usual.

Reputation and legislation

Banks, buyers, policymakers, and civil society are increasingly expecting transparency and action in high-emitting sectors. Increasing media scrutiny brings heavy reputational risks, and more legislation is on the horizon, such as G7-backed mandatory disclosure.

CarbonChain helps you tame the complexity of ESG regulation and mitigate risks early by measuring, understanding, and managing your emissions.

Seize opportunities

Commodity traders will need to prepare for the shocks of a rapidly changing market. But by raising your ambition even higher, the transition to net-zero can go further, faster — with business benefits for first movers:
