Responsible business leaders convene in San Francisco

San Francisco - Co-op America returns to San Francisco to present the third annual Green Business Conference, November 7-10, 2006, prior to the Green Festival. Offering a plethora of speakers, workshops, business-to-business networking, and more, if you're only going to attend one business conference this year make it this one!

Jeffrey Hollander, Seventh Generation CEO said, "When it comes to green business, this conference is as good as it gets...the best collection of green business leaders you'll meet anywhere," after attending the last three conferences.

This conference can help you build the marketplace for your business, connect with like-minded business visionaries, and learn how and why green businesses succeed. If you're not already a green business or want to take your company to the next level this is the place to start. This is no ordinary business conference but rather a hands-on experience in the green business revolution.

"If you're serious about taking your company green, be it a sole partnership or corporation, Green Business Conference is the place to start the journey," said Cliff Bar Co-Founder Gary Erickson, who recently turned his company into one of the greenest businesses around.

This year's speakers include: Michael Crooke, CEO Revolution Living; Ben Cohen, founder Ben&Jerrys; Paul Ray, author of The Cultural Creative; Chip Conley, founder Joie de Vivre Hospitality; Heather Howitt, founder Oregon Chai; Gerald Prolman, CEO Organic Bouquet; Joe Sibilia, president CSR Wire; Betsy Rosenberg, journalist Air America's EcoTalk; Ryan Black, co-founder Sambazon; Arran Stephens, founder Nature's Path; Peter Barnes, co-founder Working Assets; Jill Bamburg, Dean of Sustainable MBA; Sharif Abdullah, author and many more.

What is a "Green Business?"

Green businesses operate in ways that solve, rather than cause, both environmental and social problems. These businesses adopt principles, policies, and practices that improve the quality of life for their customers, their employees, communities, and the environment.

Here's what some of last year's attendees had to say:

"I thank you for the fantastic conference! Not only was it informative, it was fun as well. With the information I received, along with the incredible contacts I made, I'm sure our business will grow. I can't wait to attend next year."
--Gretchen Wirth, Rivanna Natural Designs

"I got so much from the conference. All your hard work and excellent planning made a huge statement and impact on me. It opened my eyes and beliefs...and helped me see the importance of the movements Co-op America and its members are trying to accomplish. Your conference brought a new sense of being and drive...and helped me learn more about what is truly important and I thank you."
--Steven D. Kimmell, Sustainability Services Consulting
