CHICAGO,IL. - July 7, 2008 - Senior sustainability executives are looking forward to sharing their company’s climate change initiatives and learning from other corporations at Corporate Climate Response this September in Chicago.

"Corporate Climate Response clearly seeks to address a variety of different issues from engaging employees to managing one's supply chain to implementing a successful offset strategy," comments Hugh Strange, Co-director of Energy Initiatives at News Corporation, who is speaking at the event. "We are looking forward to drawing on all of these conversations to strengthen our global vision and strategy across our operations."

"We are interested in exchanging and learning best practices for effectively and efficiently monitoring, reporting, and reducing carbon emissions from our operations and related to our products under future national, regional, and perhaps international regimes," says Kenneth Martchek, Global Life Cycle and Environmental Sustainability Manager for Alcoa. Martchek will be discussing Alcoa's global carbon reduction strategy at Corporate Climate Response and will be joined by other members of the EPA's Climate Leaders program including National Grid and PepsiCo.

So far over 25 leading companies are confirmed to participate in this annual event which takes place September 22-24 in Chicago.

Representatives from Xerox, Staples, Timberland, Steelcase, DuPont, Fiji Water, adidas, Coca-Cola Enterprises, National Grid, Stony Field Farm, PG&E, and Caterpillar are among those participating.

Two leading CEOs will be joining participants at Corporate Climate Response to share their company's latest climate initiatives. John Wells, CEO of Interface Americas, will be discussing his company's target to move to 100% renewable energy sources and John Replogle, CEO of Burt's Bees, will be talking about the complexities of greening supply chains.

Corporate Climate Response is the must-attend event for those charged with developing corporate environmental strategies and their advisers. It aims to provide practical advice on climate response which delegates and speakers can incorporate into their own sustainability strategies. Topics to be covered include cutting absolute carbon emissions, the outlook for national carbon trading, supply chain efficiency, the role of clean technologies, and water footprinting.

This is the premier networking forum for sustainability, environmental, supply chain, energy, procurement, natural resource, facilities, and CSR managers.
