diversity & inclusion

At Mercuria, we place a great value on our employees. We believe that by attracting and retaining a diverse workforce, we can build a team of the highest performing individuals.

We understand that diversity brings unique perspectives and ideas to the table, which can help us stay ahead of the curve in the fast-paced energy industry.

As such, we are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion and we work hard to cultivate an environment that encourages dignity and respect.

We recognise that our employees are our greatest assets and by fostering a culture of collaboration and inclusivity, we encourage them to share their ideas and opinions without any hesitation. We firmly believe that when employees feel valued and heard, they are more likely to be engaged and motivated, leading to increased productivity and overall job satisfaction.

We actively invest in our employees and create a supportive and inclusive work environment so that all employees feel that they can fully contribute to the growth and success of Mercuria without experiencing harassment or discrimination. By doing this, we believe that we will continue to attract and retain top talent and achieve our business objectives.

We have made significant efforts to promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace. By recruiting from diverse universities, improving parental leave time, supporting women by providing paid memberships to the Women’s Energy Network in the energy sector, celebrating International Women’s Day, and taking other steps, Mercuria has created a more diverse and inclusive workplace.

These efforts have helped to build a workforce that reflects the diverse communities it serves and has provided opportunities for women and other underrepresented groups to succeed. Mercuria’s commitment to diversity and inclusion is a positive example for other companies to follow.
