Energy strategy 2012: Policy implications of the corporate energy survey
An Aldersgate Group and Green Monday report
Our relationship with energy has determined our economic prosperity for hundreds of years. The discovery of coal underpinned the industrial revolution, whilst the oil-shocks of the 1970’s demonstrated the vulnerability of modern economies to energy prices.
The past decade has seen energy return to the board room in many sectors, driven by price volatility and the carbon agenda. Early movers such as GE, Siemens, Nissan, M&S and Philips have led the way on business model change, and have positioned themselves to outperform in the new era.
