Progress on energy and sustainability was at an all-time high in 2019. How will that momentum fare in a new decade-and under radical new circumstances?
Submitted by Schneider Electric
Our research was conducted in the fall of 2019, at a time when none of us could anticipate that the publication of this report would overlap with the proliferation of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
We recognize that this global crisis has impacted everyone, including energy and sustainability professionals, and that it will have far-ranging social and economic ramifications that we cannot fully predict. We also acknowledge that these impacts may ultimately change the energy and sustainability trajectory that many organizations were on at the turn of the decade.
We have chosen to continue with the publication of our report despite these extraordinary circumstances because we recognize that as the world begins to recover, the work of energy and sustainability professionals will be more important than ever. Please bookmark this site and return frequently for updates to the content as the situation progresses.
