Nickel plays a big role in your smartphone by connecting a maze of chips and processors with just the right amount of power. But while nickel achieves this electrical balancing act in the palm of your hand, it also does it on a much larger scale in the rechargeable batteries that make it possible to integrate wind and solar power into the grid. 

As we look to the future, nickel’s role in our lives will grow. At Glencore, we provide commodities like nickel that are essential for society to progress. We believe this needs to be done responsibly.

How we source a sustainable future.
