GLOBE announced today that newly named Suncor Energy president Steve Williams will join the conference’s opening plenary on innovation and its role in driving sustainability.

Suncor, developer of the Athabasca oil sands, won the Fuel Change Award 2011 for its pioneering work in the development and commercialization of biofuels at the 8th Annual Canadian Renewable Fuels Summit in Calgary. Williams is expected to discuss the environmental issues associated with oil sands.

Meanwhile, the ReNew Canada team is working on putting together its panel on integrated planning for urban infrastructure–a cross-sector discussion about the best way forward in a capital-constrained world.
