Disruption forces energy companies to innovate, review investment strategies, develop greater digital capabilities and consider collaborations outside the industry.

How Thierry is building a better working world

“I am passionate about helping clients in traditional or carbon-intensive industries find more innovative, sustainable approaches that move them toward decarbonization.

I work with companies to co-create these technologies and put them into practice, with a focus on execution — at EY, we call it the Innovation Realized approach.

For me, emerging technologies are like a sixth sense that can help human beings become more effective and more accurate — not replace them.”
