Sen. Edwards to Keynote SustainPro Conference
Sen. John Edwards, who proposed a $13 billion per year New Energy Economy Fund and was the first presidential candidate to make his campaign carbon-neutral, will deliver a keynote speech at the SustainPro Conference and Expo, Oct. 29-30 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago.
Scheduled for one week before the U.S. presidential election, Edwards will address an audience of more than 2,000 operations-level corporate executives responsible for greening up their companies' operations. He will address sustainability-era business and career success strategies.
"As a carbon cap-and-trade policy pioneer who introduced a detailed energy plan before any other candidate in the 2008 presidential campaign, Sen. Edwards will share his mastery of the future of sustainability with North America's largest-ever corporate sustainability audience," says Jay Whitehead, SustainPro conference chair and CRO magazine publisher.
Terry Tamminen, California environment policy leader and former California EPA head also will address the conference. Tamminen, author of "Lives Per Gallon: The True Cost of Our Oil Addiction" introduced California's Hydrogen Highway, the Million Solar Roof Initiative, and the landmark Climate Change Action Plan. He will address the "corporate climate change action plan," with specific recommendations for corporations.
