Addressing the Energy-Water-Food challenge

Webchat // Addressing the Energy-Water-Food challenge

Webchat hosted by Dick Benschop, President Director Shell Netherlands and Jeremy Bentham, Vice President Global Business Environment

Join Dick Benschop, Jeremy Bentham and other Shell Executives at our upcoming webchat on September 27, as they discuss and share their views on how we can tackle the complex issues of the energy-water-food challenge. This session is also timely given the recent US drought situation which puts into sharp focus the linkages between energy, water and food resources, with water scarcity impacting both food production and electricity generation. You will have the opportunity to join us and present your questions on this issue in real time to our panel of experts.

This webchat follows the Powering Progress Together Forum held in May 2012, co-hosted by Shell and the City of Rotterdam, which brought together more than 500 leaders from business, government and civil society to brainstorm new ideas with the public to address these resource challenges.
