Benchmark press release

Benchmark Mineral Intelligence has received The King’s Award for Enterprise in the category for International Trade.

The King’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the UK.

This is His Majesty King Charles III’s second awards following his desire to continue the legacy created by HM Queen Elizabeth II.

This year 252 businesses have been recognised for their contribution to International Trade, Innovation, Sustainable Development and Promoting Opportunity (through Social Mobility).

Benchmark CEO, Simon Moores said:

“To receive the King’s Award from His Majesty King Charles III and on the Prime Minister’s recommendation is of huge significance for us.

Benchmark was founded on the principle that independent and accurate market prices and intelligence are a cornerstone to the electric vehicle and energy storage era.

We were founded with no investment in 2014 to become the most valuable business in the world for what we do.

From our bases in London and Swindon, and harnessing the strength of UK-based talent, our team have guided the decision-making of leaders across energy, transportation, technology, finance and politics under times of immense change.

Benchmark has steered the allocation of billions of pounds of capital investment, putting British research and intellectual property at the heart of the global push towards clean energy.

Benchmark’s impact is being felt not just in our industry but at the highest levels of global influence.

All of Team Benchmark send our deepest gratitude to The King and Prime Minister Sunak for this award.”
