The logo and its meaning

The Glencore logo, which dates back to 1974, the year of the company’s foundation, is very concise and straightforward. It consists of the brand name written in block letters: “GLENCORE”. The letters of the wordmark are made with very thin and elegant graphics most close to the commercial font Gill Facia Std Regular. The letter “R” has a special feature; its leg is extended in a curve that reaches the middle of the last letter “E” and makes the logo more original and easily recognizable.  The wordmark is made in a charcoal grey colour.

The name Glencore is, in fact, an abbreviation, which means “Global Energy Commodities and Resources”. Having started almost half a century ago as a mere trading agency, today the company that is associated with the Glencore logotype has developed into one of the largest diversified natural resource enterprises in the world.  According to the firm’s Internet site, the corporate policy behind the Glencore wordmark includes openness and mutual benefit for the company and its clients, responsibility and care for environment protection, simplicity, and ongoing improvement in the company’s performance, entrepreneurialism and safety for its employees.
