Upcoming Events

Future of Fuels Spring Forum at ACT Expo 2017

Long Beach, California

 

Date and Time

Monday May 1, 2017
3:45 pm-5:30 pm PDT


Location

Long Beach, California



Sustainable fuels and related technologies are increasingly critical to business success. But which fuels are sustainable and how do they scale? At the 2017 Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, BSR will lead a discussion on the newly launched Sustainable Fuel Buyers’ Principles. Developed by BSR’s Future of Fuels members, including Amazon.com, UPS, and Walmart, the Fuel Principles are designed to increase the availability of sustainable, low-carbon fuels by:

  • Signaling the magnitude of business demand
  • Clarifying sustainability criteria needed for uptake, and
  • Encouraging partnerships and pilots with suppliers.

BSR’s Future of Fuels works with its corporate members and more than 600 stakeholders to improve fuel choices as a critical piece of the global freight agenda, and ultimately to drive a sustainable transition to sustainable commercial freight.
