Sustainable Industries 2009 gives your company several opportunities to participate, share and showcase your green, clean and sustainable practices and products. Visit the expo pages here or continue on to find out more about speaking opportunities and the program below. Growing environmental concerns, coupled with public pressure and increasingly stringent regulations are beginning to change the way people do business. Creating sustainable industries — businesses that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs is now a necessity.

The Sustainable Industries 2009 conference program addresses these issues with a mix of Best Practices, Case Studies, Policy Development, Training and Educational Programs, and Measurement and Reporting Tools and Techniques. The event provides an opportunity for business managers, government officials and sustainability professionals to discuss the methods for implementing this new orientation and related operating refinements to their existing systems and practices. If you would like to speak at the conference, please use the form below to submit your sessions and topic ideas.

How is your company sustainable?
