The metals industry has not necessarily always been associated with the sustainability agenda. But progress has been made in the last few years and metals now have a golden opportunity to shape a brighter future as they play a crucial and growing role in the world’s transition to sustainability.
Join the LME as we assess our, and the industry’s, progress in supporting the metals evolution; and hear from industry professionals on their evaluation of where we are, and what still needs to be done.
