Our purpose
& commitments

Connecting markets. Advancing the energy transition.

Our purpose is to connect markets and advance the energy transition

The global energy system needs reliable, affordable and sustainable energy. Mercuria is committed to contributing to a better energy system that achieves and balances these needs.

Connecting markets

We connect markets by bringing together buyers and sellers, while promoting fair and efficient trade.

Advancing the energy transition

We are advancing the energy transition by investing and partnering in new businesses and technologies. It is by harnessing our distinctive capabilities that we enable our customers to secure their energy needs and access sustainable supply chains.

Talk about 2050 is always about net zero because there's probably going to be some form of fossil fuel consumption, so something will have to capture carbon from the air. There are many different technologies, but we believe that protecting forests and investing in tree planting, wetlands and biodiversity will be very important for the balance of this planet.

Our commitments

There is urgent need for both the provision of low carbon energy, and the protection and restoration of nature. Both are critical if the world is to achieve net zero.

Investing in the energy transition

We are well ahead of our commitment that over 50% of our investment capital will go into the low carbon sector by 2025 to help advance the energy transition.

Protecting and restoring nature

We have established Silvania, a $500 million nature investment vehicle, to restore and protect land and forests. It will have an initial focus on areas totalling 10 million hectares, which is larger than Switzerland or Scotland.

A net zero carbon business

We are working hard to manage and reduce the carbon footprint of our business. This is a non-linear journey as parts of the business are harder to decarbonise than others, so we have offset the remaining Scope 1 & 2 carbon emissions in 2022.

We are also committed to operating in an ethical and responsible manner. We work transparently and openly with our stakeholders to address together the complexities and opportunities in our sector.
