Responsibly sourcing the commodities that advance everyday lifeWatch our Purpose film
Glencore is committed to advancing everyday life by supplying the commodities needed to develop, sustain and improve the world around us.
It’s why we come to work and it’s what we do. We want to bring about long-term growth and opportunity for all our stakeholders, including customers, shareholders, employees, and the communities and countries in which we operate.
Through the scale and diversity of our industrial and marketing businesses, we responsibly supply the commodities that are fundamental to the building blocks of life. Be that to build essential infrastructure, from homes and hospitals, to roads and rail networks; to produce the batteries that are transforming modern technology and mobility; or to ensure access to affordable energy for all.
By partnering with communities and governments we are able to bring progress to many. This is our Purpose. When we fulfil it, we advance everyday life.Read our Purpose and Values book
Our Values reflect our Purpose and define what it means to work at Glencore. They are at the heart of our culture and the way we do business.
