AHC Group Energy Competitiveness Workshop — April 2017 Session

AHC Group's Energy Competitiveness Workshop, which has met seven times over the past three years, comprises leading companies from the major industrial sectors impacted by carbon issues, with a focus on seeking solution sets through innovation and developing new business opportunities.

This practical, solutions-based perspective means that all our discussions, joint projects, presentations, and narratives are focused exclusively on the role innovation plays in answering your climate and carbon issues, both in the minds of regulators and the public, and in the actions of senior management at member firms.

See the links below for the Workshop Agenda and representative presentations from five of our key members.
