SUSTAINABLE COMMODITY DERIVATIVES: THE WFE’S NEW FRAMEWORK

Commodity producers and users of commodity derivatives markets are increasingly concerned with specific sustainability aspects of commodities. Organized with the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE), the session will bring together key players such as commodities exchanges, market intermediaries, commodity derivatives users and investors and securities market regulators to address opportunities and challenges for incorporating sustainability considerations into commodity derivatives. The basis for the discussion will be the WFE’s Framework for Sustainable Commodity Derivatives.

Issues for the debate:

  • What role do various actors in the commodities ecosystem play in developing this offering?
  • Which commodities best lend themselves to the incorporation of sustainability principles?
  • At what point does it become necessary for purposes of price discovery for sustainability issues to be included in the contract specification?
