State of Green Biz in Bay Area – forum

leave a comment »

One of the things I do is volunteer with the Job Forum here in San Francisco and many of our participants want to know about green jobs and the state of green business here in the Bay Area. On February 2nd greenbiz.com and others are putting on the 2009 State of Green Business Forum here in San Francisco. 

Deets:

  • February 2, 2009
  • 9:30 – 3:30
  • PG&E Auditorium
  • 245 Market St.
  • San Francisco, California

Attendees will participate in sessions on:

  • The State of Green Business, 2009 — A presentation by GreenBiz.com Executive Editor Joel Makower of the trends and metrics on the greening of Corporate America.
  • Innovation as a Green Strategy — How companies are harnessing environmental thinking to create new products, services, and sources of business value.
  • Energy Efficiency Rises Again — The resurgence of interest in efficiency, especially among manufacturers and commercial building owners.
  • Is Water the New Carbon? — How companies are preparing for anticipated disruptions in access to water around the world.
  • The Green Jobs Opportunity — The role of companies and local governments in promoting economic and workforce development.

In another post, I’ll outline the speakers — which look like an interesting cross section from big businesses like IBM and small businesses and Institutes.
