BUILDING THE ENERGY TRANSITION
Metals and minerals
Metals including aluminium, copper and zinc play a crucial role in the shift to a low-carbon economy. These vital resources are required to build wind turbines, solar panels and for electrification.
Other metals such as nickel and cobalt are needed for electric vehicles and energy storage, while lead batteries are helping to power the internet.
Trafigura is a leading supplier of high-quality iron ore to the global steelmaking industry. Over 15 years, we have developed a core group of responsible suppliers, ensuring the products we buy and sell meet international standards and the precise specifications of our customers. We work with established private, public and state-owned companies, offering a range of services to clients including blending, storage and shipping.
Metallurgical and thermal coal
To complement our activities in iron ore, we buy and sell metallurgical coal, also needed to produce steel. In addition, we supply thermal coal to utility companies in various countries around the world. While acknowledging the role that coal currently plays in both industries, revenues from coal account for less than 5% of the Group total.
