businessman and advocate of action on climate change. We believe we have built a
strong business that will play a key part in meeting the global need for
sustainable transport based on renewable biofuel, and we are doing so in a way

that is making a difference in the world and the presence of Lord Oxburgh as its
Chairman will enhance that capability immensely. I can think of no better person
to lead the Board.'
