Date: 31 March
Time: 2PM London/3PM CET
Driving proactive standardization to foster innovation and market access
The Biden Clean Energy Plan has been called the most ambitious clean energy vision by any U.S. president in history. The plan is far-reaching in scope and covering clean infrastructure development, improvements in the auto industry, power sector reform, sustainable building and housing development. What do these proposed changes mean for the energy sector?
As the energy sector assesses (and in many cases moves towards) “more sustainable” operations, it’s important that organizations define what sustainability means for their businesses and what is the “right size of sustainability” for them today. The objective for any organization is to navigate the changes in a reliable and predictable way. Implementing a right-sized sustainability program is key to the identification, assessment and management of economic, societal and environmental risks and opportunities.
Implementing a “right-sized” sustainability program will most certainly mean changes to operations and changes in technologies. The development and reliance on standards and best practices is another important tool for managing changes in operations. Further, adoption of new technologies can expose the organization to cyber vulnerabilities. Understanding and preparing for these will aid in a proactive mitigation.
The upcoming webinar will focus on what sustainability can mean in the era of the Biden Clean Energy Plan, while also addressing the role of standards and technology in planning for the future under the current administration.
