The Impact of the Russia-Ukraine War on Global Commodity Markets and the Energy Transition

Past Event

April 26, 2022

6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

The current commodity market turmoil related to the Russia-Ukraine War has highlighted the importance of global commodity markets in supporting the energy transition to low- and zero-carbon fuels, while also creating unprecedented volatility and risk around trading and risk management of oil, gas, and metals. This raises questions regarding how we can restructure and build commodity trading that can both support progress toward net-zero goals while managing the risks of price swings and unpredictability for consumers and industry. The Russia-Ukraine crisis also highlights how the main players in the commodity  industry are transitioning from large banks to private trading houses, potentially raising questions about market efficiency, transparency, and ESG. 
 
In their book The World for Sale, Javier Blas and co-author Jack Farchy explore commodity trading related to key resources around the world. The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted Mr. Blas and Mr. Farchy for a presentation of key themes of their book. Following their presentation, they joined a moderated discussion on the implications of the current turmoil in commodity markets for the energy transition.
