David Gardiner and Associates hosted a discussion about how manufacturers are increasingly powering their operations with renewable energy. Our webinar on February 14, 2018 featured Rob Threlkeld, Global Manager of Renewable Energy at General Motors and Steve Skarda, Global Climate and Energy Leader for Procter & Gamble. The two panelists from major U.S. manufacturers discussed their companies’ leadership on renewable energy and how it fits with their business strategy.

Alexandra Rekkas, DGA’s Senior Research Associate, presented the findings from her study examining the renewable energy and greenhouse gas commitments of manufacturers —The Growing Demand for Renewable Energy Among Major U.S. and Global Manufacturers. David Gardiner, president of David Gardiner and Associates, moderated the webinar.
