Covid-19 Impacts on Energy and Sustainability Aspects of Material Supply Chains
How has the pandemic impacted energy and sustainability aspects of material supply chains (including PPE, batteries, and commodities)?
What opportunities are there for materials innovation to drive sustainable solutions in the midst of a pandemic?
What role do factors such as government policies, market factors, and customer priorities play?
What long-lasting sustainability-related supply chain impacts (positive and negative) might we expect?
These questions were put to Jonathan Cullen, Elsa Olivetti (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Yi Cui (Stanford University & SLAC), and Sam Jaffe (Cairn Energy Research Advisors) as part of the MRS Focus on Sustainability Subcommittee, MRS Energy & Sustainability journal, and the F2020/S2020 Meeting Symposium GI01.
