Commerzbank’s second report looks at potential scenarios for the future of sustainable trade over the coming decades

In time for SIBOS 2015, Commerzbank has produced a new report on sustainability in trade.

Drawing upon expert opinion and case studies, Scenarios for the future of sustainable trade offers a projection for sustainability in the global economy for the coming decades.

The new report assesses the global economic outlook for the next 10-15 years against the five main drivers of sustainable trade defined in the first report, offering the ‘best-case’ and ‘worst-case’ scenarios – and a likely outcome in between.

Five drivers will shape the future of sustainable trade
Sustainability and sustainable trade have become essential to corporate strategy and operations and their importance in trade is set to grow further. Commerzbank feels the responsibility to foster the debate on these topics and would like to play an active part in this. Therefore, Commerzbank has partnered with Oxford Analytica, a global analysis and advisory firm, to provide an original outlook for sustainable trade over the next 15 years by exploring five drivers of sustainable trade.

Regulation, new patterns of global demand, supply chain trends, alliances, standards and labels, as well as innovative finance, are the five key drivers which will shape the future of sustainable global trade over the next 10-15 years, says the report released in March 2015 by Commerzbank.
