Creating Climate Wealth Summit North America

Creating Climate Wealth Summit North America, will take place in Washington DC, between May 3-4, 2011. Two other summits are also scheduled for this year including a July Summit in Sydney, Australia and a September summit in London, England. These summits are dedicated to accelerating wealth creation opportunities, economic growth, and good green jobs. Creating climate wealth can also reduce carbon by one billion tons.

The green economy is the 21st century's most lucrative opportunity. In the US alone the green economy is valued at $500 billion and it is poised for growth. There could be between 1.8 million and 2.4 million green jobs in energy conservation, resource conservation and pollution control.

A new UN report has suggested that investing $1.3 trillion each year in green sectors would deliver long-term stability in the global economy. Spending about 2% of global GDP in 10 key areas would kick-start a global low carbon, resource efficient green economy.

Since the oil crises of the 1970s, billions of dollars have been pumped into technology development in the areas of energy efficiency, low carbon energy, efficient transportation, bio-fuels, and other areas. This investment has led to hundreds of breakthroughs that are today cost effective. Yet, full commercial utilization of this innovation and their financial rewards still elude us.

Creating Climate Wealth (CCW) Summit North America aims to fast-track this amazing wealth creation opportunity to create economic growth, entrepreneurial wealth, well paid jobs, and a gigaton of carbon reductions.

The summits are an invitation only event that provide a unique workshop-driven convening of US executives, investors, entrepreneurs, and leaders from the private and public sector. The purpose is to identify specific US pathways to accelerate deployment of green solutions in the face of low expectations and weak mandates.

During the summit, delegates will address ways to bring existing technologies to scale, while meeting employment, economics and sustainability goals. The technologies are spread across seven clean tech tracks: Distributed Generation, Energy Efficiency, Island Nations, Renewable Fuels, Shipping and Freight, Sustainable Agriculture, and Future of Person Transportation.

Each working track begins ahead of the Summit with a Carbon War Room pre-read report on market barriers where delegates use their entrepreneurial expertise to problem-solve and technology expertise to build new approaches to delivering high-profit solutions.
