On-Demand: Impact on Raw Materials from Geopolitical Instability

Population growth, economic development and a change in commercial consumption patterns are important drivers for the demand and use of raw resources in processes. While most of these factors can be adequately calculated and prepared for, sudden shifts in geopolitical landscapes have the potential to swiftly disrupt the demand and use of raw materials.

Many industries have recently felt the impact on raw materials from geopolitical instability following the Russian invasion of the Ukraine. From oil and gas to wheat and sunflower oil, a range of global manufacturers must pivot their processes as access to these and many other exports have stagnated. This has led to many manufacturing businesses sourcing alternative suppliers or materials.

We will discuss some of the process safety pitfalls to be aware of when seeking to vet, select, and manage raw materials from different providers and its impact on your processes. Essentially, this webinar will discuss change management and risk mitigation in fast moving industries that have to pivot to meet demand.

What you’ll learn:

  • Understanding how to implement multiple risk assessments and their relationship to geopolitical instability
  • How to correctly plan for mitigating circumstances
  • How to incorporate a rigorous management of change system
