Record prices, extreme volatility, net-zero carbon demands, liquidity challenges and disrupted supply chains are the ‘new normal’ in commodities. Planning for 2022 and beyond in this environment is incredibly hard. In this episode, we go into the boardrooms of traders, producers and consumers to understand the challenges they face and the decisions to make to survive and thrive in this uncertain world. Our guest is McKinsey’s Partner Xavier Veillard, who leads the commodity trading practice. Xavier takes us on a guided tour on which topics (and why) are on the agenda and why this ‘new normal’ is likely here for the long term.
