Geopolitics, war, and the overhaul of the global energy system have combined in the 2020s to demonstrate, once more, the centrality of many commodities to the global economy. Commodity traders are being sought out by governments to ensure continued access to key resources, while producers are being asked to boost supply.

The promised electrification of the global energy system is encouraging new investment into critical minerals and their supply chains. The El Nino weather phenomenon continues to pose new challenges for agricultural markets, yet carbon credits for soil and the greening of the sector is driving new investment. As geopolitics shifts in an increasingly multipolar world, the risk of sanctions and trade restrictions rises. New centres of trading activity are challenging the dominance of existing players. And while traders and producers are benefiting from demand driven by the energy transition, they too must seek to decarbonise. How will the commodity industry navigate this new world order?

Now in its 13th year, the Commodities Global Summit has established itself as the pre-eminent gathering of senior commodity executives, traders and financiers. They will share their insights on the key issues facing the industry across three days, in conversation with leading FT journalists.

As energy policy remains at the top of the political agenda, hydrogen is touted as a critical tool in the net-zero transition. However, while policy ambitions are increasing globally, the practical pathway to scaling up clean hydrogen remains unclear. Existing hydrogen production still needs to be decarbonised, while pertinent questions also remain about the lack of progress on large-scale projects and the availability of cheap renewable power to produce green hydrogen. Against this backdrop, disagreement continues over which sectors the fuel is best positioned to decarbonise. Can the industry navigate these challenges to make clean hydrogen a permanent feature of the global energy mix?

Now in its third year, the FT’s Hydrogen Summit has established itself as the pre-eminent gathering of leading hydrogen executives, policymakers and financiers. Throughout a comprehensive day of content and networking, the Summit will once again provide a unique forum for a nuanced discussion of the opportunities and obstacles in harnessing the full power of hydrogen.
