This year has seen an unprecedented number of challenges and disasters – the Massey coal mine collapse, the Senate’s failure to act on climate and clean energy and, of course, the BP oil spill. We already knew time was running short in implementing sustainable economic solutions, but we’re now seeing the stark, deleterious effects of business as usual: lives have been lost, ecosystems ravaged, more jobs exported overseas.
We have the technical know-how to bring about major change. And many companies and investors have been thinking creatively and moving decisively to transform the way they do business. Now it’s time to create the collective will to move forward, innovate our way past obstacles, and bring sustainability solutions to scale.
Please join us in Oakland on May 11-12, along with fellow leaders in the corporate, investor, labor and NGO worlds. Together we’ll capitalize on our collective energy and creativity to move toward a truly sustainable global economy. Learn more about the conference.
