With new regulations such as the corporate sustainability due diligence directive coming into play in Europe, and traders wanting to apply this throughout their global supply chains, the fragmentation between regions in terms of sustainability-linked regulations is apparent.

  • How are regions such as Europe and the US differing in terms of technologies, infrastructure, investments and sustainability-tied debt? 
  • How can a more universal cohesion around due diligence, reporting and transparency in the commodities space be achieved? 
  • How big of a role is technology taking in this space, and is it the way forward?
