Commodity producers and users are increasingly focused on specific sustainability aspects of commodities and are exploring ways to address these across the value chain, including in the products they use to hedge their exposure. Organized with the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE), the session will bring together key players such as commodities exchanges, market intermediaries, commodity users, investors and market regulators to discuss sustainability in the context of commodities and commodity derivatives.
Issues for the debate
- What can various actors in the commodities ecosystem do to address the challenges of addressing sustainability concerns?
- Are there certain commodities that better lend themselves to the incorporation of sustainability elements?
- If one were to embed sustainability elements into a derivatives contract, what might that look like?
