AspenTech’s President and CEO, Antonio Pietri, will welcome attendees with a keynote address highlighting the global state of the energy transition, the challenges faced, the role of digital solutions in achieving net zero and the importance of collaboration and co-innovation. “To achieve global sustainability goals, innovation must span the entire value chain, encompassing new business models, embracing new partnerships and emphasizing organizational excellence. I’m eager to host our global customers this spring and collaborate on these critical topics,” said Pietri.
