Bruce Niemeyer, Vice President, Chevron Strategy and Sustainability
Abstract: Today’s global energy markets are being shaped by two primary forces: macroeconomic factors driving a future rise in world energy demand and global efforts to lower emissions. Affordable, reliable, and ever-clear energy is essential to human progress. Balancing these dynamics will be critical to the future of energy markets. At Chevron, we believe the future of energy is lower carbon and are committed to leveraging our strengths to deliver lower carbon energy to a growing world.
