Atul Arya, Senior Vice President and Chief Energy Strategist at IHS Markit, shares his insights on energy transition dynamics in this Executive Conversation, conducted as part of IHS Markit’s Chemical Leadership Circle. What elements of the energy transition have the strongest impact? How important are developing nations' energy strategies to global carbon management efforts? What challenges lie ahead for companies to meet their critical 2030 targets?
