CEOs and senior sustainability professionals from Xerox, DuPont, Alcoa, Burt's Bees, Interface, adidas, Pepsi, Coca-Cola Enterprises, and more to present climate strategies

CHICAGO,IL. - August 5, 2008 - Over 40 companies have now joined the list of speakers for the third annual Corporate Climate Response event this September 22-23 in Chicago. Senior sustainability experts from Xerox, Alcoa, National Grid, Coca-Cola Enterprises, DuPont, Stonyfield Farms, News Corporation, adidas, Pepsi, Caterpillar, and more are confirmed to present case studies on their company’s climate reduction strategies at this premier networking event for environmental management, sustainability and CSR professionals.

John Wells, CEO of Interface Americas, is presenting a keynote case study on his company's goal to source all of its energy globally from renewable sources by 2020. "As green topics and issues have exploded, many companies are getting involved and are coming up with new and innovative ideas to use renewable energy and decrease their carbon emissions," says Wells. "I'm looking forward to hearing more about some of these new strategies at Corporate Climate Response."

Burt's Bees CEO John Replogle is also speaking at this event and will discuss the complexities of building a sustainable supply chain. The company recently announced its goal to reduce its US Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 35 percent per dollar sales from 2006 to 2011.

Another recent addition to the Corporate Climate Response agenda is Robert Meyers, Principal Deputy Assistant at EPA. Meyers will participate in a discussion on the outlook for national carbon trading in the US. With both presidential nominees supporting climate policy, it’s widely anticipated companies will soon be impacted by a national carbon capping system and this panel will provide the latest updates on how companies should prepare.

Corporate Climate Response is the must-attend event for those charged with developing corporate environmental strategies and their advisers. It provides practical advice and the latest updates on how companies are responding to climate change through corporate case studies and expert panels. Topics to be covered at this event include cutting absolute carbon emissions, supply chain efficiency, the role of clean technologies, water management, carbon offsetting and engaging employees on carbon reduction.
