New Discussion
By Jeffrey Moe
Global Director, Energy Policy & Advocacy,
Center for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability at Ingersoll Rand
"At Ingersoll Rand, we made a climate commitment in 2014 to reduce the greenhouse gas footprint of our refrigerants by 50%.... Building on our own successes, as well as promoting corporate adoption of sustainability initiatives will require the creation of policies that encourage greater energy efficiency and improve the resiliency of the electrical grid.

"A good place to start would be the creation of energy efficiency resource standards by the Federal Energy Regulation Commission or the state public utility commissions that direct utility investments.... We would also welcome additional rules clarifying the valuation of distributed energy resources and demand response solutions, such as energy storage...."
  1. Do you agree that these two policy examples would encourage the adoption of sustainable practices?
  2. Are there any negative aspects to increased adoption of corporate energy efficiency policies?
  3. Would these policies be helpful for corporations of all sizes? How can policy provide support to smaller organizations looking to expand their sustainable business practices?

Could Shell do more when it comes to tackling climate change? Why doesn’t the company simply stop producing oil and gas? And is there enough understanding of the challenges of a transition to lower-carbon energy? The Energy Podcast puts some of the big questions to one of Shell’s most senior leaders.
