Washington, D.C. - As leaders from around the world convene in Paris at the upcoming UN-COP21 they will be seeking solutions to feed a growing population, enhance economic development and opportunity, improve personal mobility, all while taking measurable steps toward lower greenhouse gas emissions and a more sustainable future.
Diesel engines have always been the workhorse of the global economy and today, diesel engines and fuel move the overwhelming majority of people and goods across the world. They are also the primary technology for building transportation and public infrastructure and the power behind most farm tractors and machines that help feed the world. Thanks to decades of innovation and continual refinement, diesel technology is recognized as an essential technology to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
This Global Forum in advance of COP21 will provide a framework for understanding current and future technology innovation and the wide range of issues and opportunities impacting diesel technology, and why and how clean diesel will be a key strategy for meeting global challenges of the future.
Time: November 24, 2015 – 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET (US)
