Topics

#Energy and Extractives, #Transport and Logistics


Focus of the Forum

The energy system is changing fundamentally, with energy consumption set to rise by around 40 percent by 2030 and a recent boom in fuel technology innovation—from the rapid expansion of shale gas production, to the rise in vehicle electrification, to the growth in advanced techniques for production from oil sands.

These shifts will have—and are already having—a profound effect on companies’ approaches to transportation.

In response, BSR’s new Future of Fuels working group is conducting the widest investigation to date about the total sustainability impacts of all available fuel types and using the information to increase understanding and improve impacts.

Learn about the working group’s newly launched first paper, which synthesizes what is known about the sustainability impacts of fuels, provides a look into future fuel markets, and considers some ways forward.

Format

The webinar will involve a teleconference accompanied by a real-time, internet-based presentation using WebEx. Telephone and login instructions will be sent following registration.

Speakers

  • Steve Leffin, Director, Global Sustainability
  • Eric Olson, Senior Vice President, BSR
