Friday, June 4
3:30 - 4:20 PM (ET)

Keynote: “GE's Commitment to Carbon Neutrality by 2030 and Beyond”


In this presentation, Lene will discuss how GE Renewable Energy takes its own medicine and pursues a very aggressive carbon neutral goal, which includes decarbonizing its own operations through eliminating waste and driving emissions and cost. She will also discuss how sustainability is a catalyst for business transformation and innovation but not to underestimate the change management and stakeholder engagement challenge.
