Hugo Brodie – London Metal Exchange – Sustainability within base metals

Hugo Brodie – Vice President – Sustainability

10 Finsbury Square, London EC2A 1AJ

Metals are an essential enabler of a sustainable future, and as global demand for metals increases, so will the expectations on sustainable standards. Within the LME’s own business and in the metals and mining industries more widely, the LME is committed to both driving and lending support to sustainability initiatives. We believe we have a collective responsibility as an industry to drive meaningful change in this space. Working together, we can make metals the cornerstone of a sustainable future.

Our strategy aims to provide the metals industry with the option of gaining greater transparency of and access to sustainably produced metal – such as low carbon aluminium – as well as to metal that itself plays a significant role in global decarbonisation and the circular economy – such as EV materials and scrap metals.


Hugo is Vice President for Sustainability at the London Metal Exchange. Prior to this he was driving the launch of new metal products undertaken by the Exchange. Hugo joined the LME in September 2015, having previously worked in Integrated Supply & Trading at BP in both trading and risk roles.
