KPMG offers insights and support for commodity trading challenges.

Commodity trading companies today operate in a highly competitive and dynamic environment where change is one of the few constant factors.

In recent years companies have been experiencing a fundamental reset and transition to new markets driven by digital innovations and the decarbonization of the industry. 

Rapid changes towards transparency, adoption of new technologies and increased ESG regulations, combined with pressure from both the public and the banking sector, forced companies to explore how to transform their businesses. To this end, our clients should address climate risk in their long-term strategy, expand their business to include new categories, increase investments in IT and M&A as well as consolidate the industry’s efforts. 

KPMG’s commodity team has the experience and practical knowledge of the commodity sector to solve complex problems and prepare for the future.
