The 2012 Sustainable Operations Summit

The 2012 Sustainable Operations Summit will take place in New York City on April 17-19 2012. While the summit program will be hosted at the Hilton New York there will also be networking activities and tours of some of New York's greenest locations.

Speakers will include BILL CLINTON Founder, The William J. Clinton Foundation and the 42nd President of the United States of America

The William J. Clinton Foundation launched the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) to create and advance solutions to the core issues driving climate change. CCI takes a holistic approach, addressing the major sources of greenhouse gas emissions and the people, policies, and practices that impact them. Working with governments and businesses around the world, CCI focuses on three strategic program areas: reducing emissions in cities, catalyzing the large-scale supply of clean energy, and working to stop deforestation.

As the U.S. sits on the sidelines, debating the validity of climate change, the rest of the world is making substantial investments in clean energy and sustainable technologies for the sake of the planet and the betterment of their economies.

Well, we have sat on the sidelines long enough and it is apparent that others will have to address these critical issues. The business community, city leadership and entrepreneurs are coming together to find cost effective solutions to address climate change. “Going green” is estimated to be a $100 billion dollar business by the year 2017.

Whether you believe in the science behind climate change or not, you cannot overlook the solid data that confirms the cost savings and efficiency gains of organizations that have embraced sustainability as a core value. Further, as an American you cannot deny the need to invest in clean energy as a way to strengthen our economy, our national security and provide a wholesome future for our children.

The Sustainable Operations Summit is the premier forum for leading organizations to share best practices that benefit both the environment and the bottom line. The 2012 summit will bring together some of the world's brightest minds in sustainability in New York City during Earth Week to share innovative approaches to reduce our impact on the environment with a focus on energy, the built environment and resource conservation.

From the High Line to the Skyline, NYC plays the perfect host for the summit as it is home to some of the most inspiring green building and urban renewal projects in the world.

The 2012 Sustainable Operations Summit is the future of sustainable operations. From exclusive keynote presentations to interactive discussions, the 2012 Summit will provide you with the knowledge and connections necessary to make a positive impact on your organization.
