DuPont Leader at UN Sustainable Energy for All Forum
DuPont Executive Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer Tom Connelly joined select business and government leaders this week to collaborate on global energy challenges during the 2011 United Nations (UN) Private Sector Forum on Sustainable Energy for All in New York City.
Chaired by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the forum brought together approximately 300 heads of state and government, business leaders, civil society leaders and heads of UN agencies to explore ways of enhancing business action and fostering more effective collaboration to address the global energy challenge.
“I appreciated participating in roundtable discussions with global leaders who understand current energy options and are looking for new solutions to meet future energy needs,” said Tom. “With a growing population, we are using our science-powered innovation to deliver greater energy efficiency now, while enabling the adoption of new clean energy technologies for the future. Whether it’s building a more efficient solar panel, next-generation biofuels or lighter weight car components — science and innovation are going to be key to fueling new industries and cleaner economies.”
The Private Sector Forum is designed to support the UN Secretary-General’s “Sustainable Energy for All” initiative, which seeks to engage governments, the private sector, and civil society to achieve universal access to modern energy services, improve energy efficiency and increase the share of energy generated from renewable resources by 2030.
