About the Speaker
Bruce Wilson sits on the Board of Directors of the not-for-profit Iron & Earth and is a founder of Thor Hydrogen, focused on the potential of renewable hydrogen to create jobs and decarbonize our energy system. A former GM with Shell, Bruce acted on the growing divergence between his personal philosophy and his career trajectory, leaving Shell to take more urgent action on climate change. He is passionate about achieving a just, equitable and inclusive transition and building transitional pathways to the net-zero economy. He believes that technology, coupled with social innovation, carries the power to create equal opportunity, helping those in our most vulnerable communities and nations adapt and thrive in a changing climate.
