This is serious business. The competitive equation is changing once again. Given current policy and market dynamics, organizations need to decide why, if, and how to act. This conference will help business decision makers understand how to integrate greenhouse gas management issues into a strategic framework for planning and action – and how to stay ahead of the curve.

Year three of this event takes place in a shifting landscape, with major uncertainties regarding the direction and timing of government policy being met by a growing movement towards voluntary action. What does seem certain is that long term trends are leading to a new competitive landscape. Join Northwest business managers, service professionals, and policy makers in a discussion of the practical business issues tied to whether and how a company acts to manage its carbon footprint.
