Assets & investments
Well ahead of our pledge that 50% of our investments will be into the energy transition by 2025.
In addition to our core trading activities, we invest our own capital into strategic assets and some of the world’s most exciting companies.
Through our assets and investments, we gain clear and in-depth insights into the sectors and markets in which Mercuria and our portfolio companies operate. Combined with our trading activities and expertise, this enables us to identify new opportunities and paths forward for our continued growth.
Historically, our focus has been predominantly on investments in upstream and midstream assets in the oil and gas sector. We believe there will remain a critical role for Mercuria to play in the responsible management of existing oil and gas assets, in order to satisfy the world’s need for secure, safe, and affordable energy today, whilst enabling the transition to more sustainable forms of energy tomorrow.
In recent years, we have been increasingly and proactively investing in projects and companies that are helping the world to decarbonise and to accelerate the transition towards more sustainable and low-carbon or zero-carbon sources of energy.
Examples of the energy transition sectors in which we have invested include:
- Renewable energy
- Low-carbon fuels
- Critical minerals and metals needed to power the energy transition
- Green and electric mobility
- Batteries and energy storage
- Low-carbon technology and innovation
- Climate, agriculture and nature-based solutions
