I believe in the need for thorough research. This is the foundation for a clear analysis and finding potential solutions. It is also crucial to keep an eye on new developments and to see how they influence ‘our’ sector. For example, take the turbulent developments concerning shale gas in the United States and its far-reaching consequences.
In Europe, coal-fired power stations are working overtime as a result of cheap imports from the US; a substantial setback for European climate change goals! Such ‘black swans’ motivate me to always maintain a critical view of any ‘given’ situations and dare to challenge them. This critical approach to and analysis of issues is central to JBR.
