NYSE Green Summit

Many on Wall Street understand that the business world has a big, direct stake in sustainable business. It is no coincidence that this year's Earth Day celebrations coincided with the Euronext and the Yale Chief Executive Leadership Institute's first Green Summit held at the New York Stock Exchange.

The day was filled with top-notch speakers on critical issues, panel discussions and other events. The event featured leaders from the Environmental Protection Agency, United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Department of Energy, and the corporate and academic sectors.

The discussion focused on ways to achieve environmental sustainability and to grow business and the economy through green business.

On the 40th Earth Day event a green summit was held in the heart of the financial sector. As we prepare the way for financial reform, Wall Street appears to be warming to the reality of a more sustainable future.
