For the big sustainability questions, we give you the wider view. Our reputation as an independent and impartial authority means you can rely on our climate policy expertise, data and insight. All stakeholders along the commodity supply chain have a vital role to play in the pathway to net zero. From policy insights, emission reduction to clean energy transition and the evolving circular economy, we can help you achieve your sustainability goals.
Policy & Regulation
Evolving climate policy and regulation landscapes demand robust analytical decision-making support. Our global footprint and on-the-ground experience ensure we provide a strong and credible voice, no matter your geography. Our insight, advice and high-quality data will help you make the right strategic business decisions to realise your sustainability goals.
The path to net zero will be enabled by changes in financial markets, production and technology, but shaped by government policies. From helping you understand how these policies impact you, to carbon price forecasts, assessing voluntary carbon offsets, emission benchmarking and monitoring carbon reduction technology, CRU Sustainability gives you the wider view.
The clean energy transition puts new demands on a company’s operating model. Drawing on our considerable data and industry expertise, CRU Sustainability can provide detailed analysis on the future of renewable energy: from wind and solar through to green hydrogen and energy storage. We can also answer your questions around the outlook for electric vehicles, battery metals, raw material requirements and prices.
The Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) landscape is fast-changing. Material efficiency and recycling are becoming increasingly important. Our network and local research capabilities, combined with detailed market knowledge, will help you navigate complex secondary markets and understand the implications of sustainable manufacturing trends. From case studies to scenario planning, we will support you through the challenge and help you adapt to a circular economy.
CRU price assessments are supported by our deep understanding of commodity market fundamentals, the operation of entire supply chains and our broader market understanding and analysis capability. Since our foundation in 1969, we have consistently invested in primary research capability and robust transparent methodologies – including in prices.
