Getting to Carbon Positive: Episode 5 - Electricity

Welcome back to our "Getting to carbon positive" podcasts series, where our leaders discuss how our post-COVID-19 recovery and rebuild opportunities could support decarbonising New Zealand and contribute to a future of sustainable prosperity.

In our fifth episode, our host Kate Meyer, Business Director of Sustainability, talks with Peter McCafferty, General Manager of our Power business and Phil Robson, Segment Manager of Hydrocarbons and Chemicals. Together they discuss electricity as a transition area in the COVID-19 rebuild challenge.
