[Webinar] The drive towards a greener future: Where does Africa fit in?

The recent spike in commodity prices is largely attributable to supply constraints and supply-chain disruptions. Yet, some commodities will be key in the green transition and may thus experience sustained demand growth in the long term. This webinar will focus on these commodities in an African context by showing where they are currently being mined, and we investigate the potential role that the continent may play in the green revolution. We also look at how South Africa has been one of the world’s biggest beneficiaries of the commodity boom, but suggest that its current mineral profile isn’t particularly future-proof.

We will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between EMEA, the Americas and APAC:

  • EMEA - Tuesday 29th June | 10:00 BST (11:00 SAST)
  • Americas - Tuesday 29th June | 16:00 EDT
  • APAC - Wednesday 30th June | 10:00 HKT
