Prices for much of what Glencore mines, including thermal coal used to generate electricity, have reached record highs, due to volatile commodity markets, shortages during protracted COVID-19-related lockdowns, and the war in Ukraine.

“Looking ahead, tightening financial conditions and a deteriorating macro-economic environment present some uncertainty for commodity markets through the second half of the year,” Chief Executive Officer Gary Nagle said.

The group’s adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) rose to $18.92 billion in the six months to June, compared with $8.7 billion a year earlier.
