Industries we work in
For energy - we work across all industries.
Plus, if your company produces, trades, or consumes other commodities,
then your profit margins are vulnerable to fluctuating material costs.
That means you’ll benefit from help in navigating and managing
the risks you face from volatile commodity prices.
Price risks aren’t exclusively the domain of the supply side (i.e. buying them), but also the sales side (i.e. selling them). So our price risk management clients are from all sorts of industries, including:
Food & beverage manufacturing/ wholesale/ retail
Industrial products manufacturing
Transport, travel & leisure

Roles we work for
Managing energy and/or commodity price risk often requires several functions to work closely together. We have a wealth of experience of working with cross disciplinary teams to get the best possible results:
Supply Chain/ Procurement – The Procurement team owns and manages supply contracts, so they are vital in working with us to determine opportunities
Property/ Facilities – Often the linch pin for energy management and plays and increasingly important role in terms of implementing smart technology to optimise buildings
Finance – Finance is obviously interested, given the risk to profitability and opportunity to improve it. It’s also involved from a planning and forecasting perspective, and as the function usually responsible for corporate governance
Treasury – Treasury is increasingly responsible for commodity price risk. It also typically manages a company’s hedging
Commercial/ Sales & Marketing – In addition to representing the voice of the customer, Sales & Marketing often also provides useful insight into what’s possible in terms of improving margins
Sustainability – The ability for positive energy management to improve sustainability and well-being makes Sustainability a key influencer in energy management decision making
