How are industrial businesses navigating the energy transition? Each are on their own journey developing carbon reduction strategies to manage their risk, improve their carbon footprint, achieve sustainability objectives, and capitalize on opportunities that are emerging from a changing energy supply mix and pricing, new technologies and new incentives. This session will cover some of the most effective types of carbon reduction opportunities including: energy efficiency improvements, fuel switching, renewable energy, efficient use and recycle of materials, carbon capture and storage, and investment in carbon sequestration or natural resource solutions with examples of how these approaches have benefitted the businesses of energy consumers, producers and distributors while improving the environment.
