SAGA Commodities: A Greener Perspective.

SAGA Commodities is a commodity broker with more than a decade of activity under its belt at the service of European industrials who have been engaged in green economy initiatives.

We offer market information, strategies for the management of carbon exposure, advisory services on the reduction of emissions, and the supply of biomass such as wood chips and pellets. We have also recently added to our portfolio of green services, the trading of steel products for the realization of modernization projects. 

The heart of our activity is carbon trading. We believe that the cap-and-trade system implemented by the European Union gives a real incentive for businesses to invest in innovation rather than just pay for polluting. Based on our experience with EU industrials, we have noticed strong commitment foster when the financial potential exists to switch to greener production technologies.

We, at SAGA Commodities, are able to create comprehensive strategies for European industrials – starting with your carbon audit – and based on which a strategy is elaborated to minimize difficulties and costs, and adapt the best trading practices.

Our second business – biomass physical trading – is also oriented towards a greener economy; and its development rose organically as we wanted to expand our ongoing business with industrial clients by directly supplying them with biomass for their production. After only three years in operation, we are proud to offer the services of our local production facilities and the network of long term clients that we have developed abroad.

Our third line of business – physical metal trading – follows the same concept of accompanying industrial clients in the upgrade of their production supply process. This activity is rapidly developing, and we are planning to expand it geographically outside of the Balkans.

At SAGA Commodities we all share the conviction that tackling climate change issues is not only an obligation for businesses, but also an opportunity to modernize the economy and bring about new jobs along with sustainable development. ‘Green jobs’ doubled in the last 15 years, and EU emissions have decreased by 18% since the ETS was put in place, compared to emission levels between the period of 1990 and 2011, while increasing GDP by 45% for the same period.

The more a country does, the more its citizens benefit from job creation, smarter products, cleaner air and a more secure energy supply.
