“We need all hands on deck. And I think demonizing one industry or excluding one industry is not helpful. I think everybody needs to come to the table. All stakeholders need to work together to really end up with you know, a resilient and lasting impact on CO2 emissions. We all know that we are facing a dual challenge here. We need more transport energy with less emissions. In fact, we need more energy with less emissions in general. The question is, how do you get there?”
