Steve Fisher, President & CEO, Novelis Inc., participated in the inaugural Reuters NEXT Global Conference, a forum of leaders and forward thinkers tasked with reimagining solutions to the challenges the New Year brings, as well as how to deal with the rifts and problems that our world and societies will face in the decades to come.
Moderated by Melanie Burton, Reuters’ Asia Mining Correspondent, Steve was part of a panel discussion alongside Yash Lohia, Chief Sustainability Officer, Indorama Ventures, one of the world’s leading producers of plastics and PET bottles.
