We are operating in a world of:

Unexpected policy changes and regional differences

Rapid technology evolution and associated investment risks

Geopolitical upheaval and rearranging supply chains

Social pressures

High value decisions are having to be made and obtaining robust support through data, insight and advice differentiates the winners.

Facing a changing technology, economic and materials landscape, there is a limited supply of industry-verified and accepted data and analysis. Methodologies need to be explicit and complex data needs to travel between an increasing number of players in evolving supply chains.

Producers, processors, consumers, governments, financial institutions and industry associations are all working with CRU and benefiting from our global reach and 50 years of experience in advising materials industries.
