As oil continues to gush into the Gulf of Mexico and BP is vilified on a daily basis by bloggers, activists, and policymakers, issues relating to the future of energy are making headlines across the U.S. Around the world, governments are responding to the threat of global warming with a range of policy responses designed to curtail emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. As the public and private sectors begin to explore the transition to a low-carbon company, executives are wondering about the challenges and promises of such a transition. Join experts who understand the issues and have an incumbent’s point of view on the future of energy.

Getting to a low-carbon economy will require that we:

  • massively improve energy efficiency and conservation
  • electrify transportation
  • de-carbonize electricity
  • deploy carbon capture and storage widely
  • reverse deforestation

Audience: Corporate environmental engineers and production managers; environmental and health & safety managers, VPs of sustainability, corporate social responsibility and citizenship, legal department, investor relations, marketing and communications, financial analysts.
