PwC is pleased to launch a short thought leadership paper on the impact of the climate change agenda post Copenhagen and the business implications for our metals clients. Key findings indicate:

  • CEOs within industrial products are beginning to come to terms with some of the commercial risks arising from climate change, as well as some of the potential opportunities.
  • Key issues remain ensuring efficient compliance through hedging arrangements and undertaking internal process improvements where possible.
  • A pro-active approach is vital. Companies need to begin work on emissions inventories, data and systems.

This paper is accompanied by a metals sector supplement providing a background on the current state of the sector followed by an analysis of the top metals clients and how they are responding to climate change issues based on publically available information. We found that many metal companies are already taking pro-active steps to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy consumption. The majority of trade organisations in the sector are actively involved in promoting global efforts to reduce emissions.
