Building A Sustainability Task Force

John Davis

nbb-logo.jpgThe National Biodiesel Board is looking for people to serve on its new Sustainability Task Force. You might remember from Cindy’s posting from Feb. 6th on the NBB National Conference & Expo blog that NBB chair Ed Hegland appointed Emily Bockian Landsburg of the Energy Cooperative and Philadelphia Fry-O-Diesel as the chair of the new group.

Landsburg and NBB task force staff assistant Don Scott are now welcoming applications of NBB member companies to the task force:

Anyone, including non-members, can nominate candidates for the group. An advisory committee to the task force is being established as a formal way to engage key experts who are not members of NBB.

Sustainability has always been a key priority for those in the biodiesel industry. Whether sustainability is measured in terms of climate change and the environment or economic and energy security for the country, the industry prides itself on the sustainability of biodiesel. The National Biodiesel Board and its supporters recently find themselves involved in more conversations about sustainability as interest has grown among the public and the media.

If you’re interested or know someone who would be perfect for this position, check out the task force’s application web site or e-mail a one-page resume; description of experience with biodiesel industry, sustainability; what segment of industry would you be representing, and how you can demonstrate their support (max 150 words); explanation of why you want to be on the Task Force and description of a time you have developed creative solutions to challenging issues or brought together diverse stakeholders (max 300 words); and your vision for the Task Force: mission, key objectives (max 100 words) to by March 5th, 2008.
