2011 Ceres Conference: Igniting Innovation. Scaling Sustainability.
On May 11-12 in Oakland, Calif., Ceres will bring together industry experts to discuss how to accelerate corporate, investor and capital market solutions on global sustainability challenges.
These inspiring world business leaders will be innovating to meet the urgent climate and resource challenges of the 21st century. They recognize the imperative, and opportunity, of building a sustainable global economy - and are filling the leadership vacuum left by our policymakers.
This year’s Ceres conference is about igniting this leadership and innovation into something far bigger and impactful. It’s about scaling up smart, sustainable technologies that use fewer resources and emit far less carbon pollution - and making those solutions more available and affordable across an ever-more populous world.
This year’s plenary program is jam-packed with exciting speakers and provocative themes. Learn more about the speakers and issues they’ll be addressing in these CSRwire Spotlights.
