BSR’s Future of Fuels and members invite you to a working session to demo the group’s new Fuel Sustainability Tool and to explore solutions to scaling more sustainable fuels. BSR will provide a live demonstration of the new tool and lead a discussion focused on the following questions:

  • What is the role of the Fuel Tool in increasing private-sector use of sustainable fuel?
  • How can companies use the Fuel Tool to to facilitate consistent buying practices across corporate fleets and signal interest in low-carbon fuels to suppliers and equipment manufacturers?
  • How can BSR best address fuel availability, vehicle types, and fleet owner actions in future iterations of the Tool?

This is an official side event of the BSR Conference 2015: Resilient Business, Resilient World. For more information on the BSR Conference—one of the world’s most influential sustainability events, now in its 23rd year—visit bsr15.org.
