Cleantech Forum SF 2013

March 18-20, 2013 | San Francisco, CA

Sustainability Meets Innovation: Reigniting Cleantech

Global energy and resources challenges have never been bigger, and the stakes are clear. Corporate business leaders worldwide are learning how environmental innovation will help drive future profitability, whereas technology investors are nervous after numerous company failures and weak public exits.

How can environmental sustainability and innovation be top of mind for customers and corporations, but not deliver the right returns for investors? Cleantech Forum 2013, Sustainability Meets Innovation: Reigniting Cleantech, will tackle this disconnect by convening cleantech's most prominent investors, entrepreneurs, and supporters with the world's largest corporate strategics, sustainability leaders, and technology buyers.

The two and a half day Forum will showcase the sector's most important startups, encourage frank conversations,  and create opportunities for participants to get to know each other, the influencers, and the issues and that will reshape their worlds. Gain insights from sustainability leaders in major corporations, innovators in the Oil & Gas industry, as well as technology developers from the consumer web and retail worlds.

Join us in March for Cleantech Forum 2013—a unique, thought-provoking, and catalytic event.

Corporate Citizenship and Sustainability Conference

June 20-21, 2012 | Washington DC | Beth Lowery, moderating panel: "Sustainability Reporting: Transparency and Risk"

Managing partnerships in the future will require new skills and techniques. New ESG linkages will forge unique relationships between finance, transportation and manufacturing functions. Multi-dimensional roles, integrity, intellectual property and due diligence will circumscribe the strategic value of ethical social responsibility. This conference will look at such issues in the developed and emerging world markets with an eye to  helpful and  disruptive technologies and social forces and the impact on the business model.

A pre-conference (click here for details), pragmatic seminar on sustainability reporting, will discuss integrated reporting, risks and transparency and highlight best practices from leadership companies. Additionally a post-conference workshop (click here for details) will devote 1/2 day to evaluation and metrics for ethics, sustainability and compliance management.
