About the Summit

How the commodity crisis is changing the world


The Covid-19 pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have thrown global energy and commodity flows into turmoil. Soaring prices for oil, gas, coal and metals have put an urgent focus on energy security, and forced a worldwide reassessment of the transition to lower-carbon technologies. Join Wood Mackenzie’s expert analysts as well as leaders from across the energy and natural resources industries, to hear how companies, investors and governments can succeed in this rapidly changing world, through the current crisis and beyond.
