Jason Klein on Shell’s energy transition strategy This video is sponsored by Shell. “Society faces a dual challenge of how do we make this transition to a low-carbon economy while at the same time extending the benefits of energy to everyone on the planet while adjusting that climate risk and the way that society is going to do that is to go through an energy transition that will change the way energy is produced, the way it’s transported and ultimately the way it is consumed and Shell is a willing and eager player in this energy transition.” Joel Makower, chairman & executive editor at GreenBiz, interviewed Jason Klein, chief of staff and vice president of energy transition strategy at Shell during the VERGE 20 virtual event (October 26-30, 2020).
