Webinar Overview

Your company may spend—and waste—millions of dollars each year on energy, and even more when considering your supply chain, vendors, and logistics costs. Yet outside of energy-intensive industries, most firms approach energy as merely a cost to be managed. 

But energy now is climbing the corporate agenda, due to opportunities to reduce costs and provide an important differentiator. As new research has shown technologies are creating new choices in managing supply and demand and sustainable business practice.

On April 19, 2017, in a live, interactive Harvard Business Review webinar,  a panel of experts  will discuss  the key steps in applying emerging best practices to create competitive advantage with energy. The on will focus on frameworks for using energy strategies that drive business value, as well insights from leading companies around making that strategy operational. You will leave this webinar with a practical, actionable framework and best practices that can drive enormous business value.
