Mind the Energy Storage Gap – is there Room for ‘Grey’ Battery Metal Lead to Play a Bigger ‘Green’ Role in Global Decarbonisation?

Metals are an essential enabler of a sustainable future, and as global demand for metals increases, so will the expectations on sustainable standards. I will take this opportunity to (i) share on LME’s sustainability strategy; (ii) how CRU aim to provide the metals industry with the option of gaining greater transparency of, and access to, sustainably produced metal;  (iii) as well as to metal that itself plays a significant role in global decarbonisation and the circular economy – such as EV materials and scrap metals. The LME provides risk management solutions across all metals, i.e., non-ferrous, ferrous, and battery materials such as cobalt, nickel, and more recently, lithium.
