2011 Ceres Conference: Igniting Innovation. Scaling Sustainability.

Organizer: Ceres

Date: 05.11.11, 07:30AM – 05.12.11, 03:00PM ET

Location:Oakland, California



Join us May 11-12 in Oakland, CA as we work together to accelerate corporate, investor and capital market solutions on global sustainability challenges.

Inspiring world business leaders are 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, including:

  • A CEO Conversation with John Anderson, president and CEO of Levi Strauss, and Andrea Moffat, vice president of the corporate program at Ceres

  • An opening keynote from Jim Woolsey, former CIA director and current senior advisor at VantagePoint Venture Partners, on the importance of a clean energy future

  • A panel discussion about the race between the U.S. and China to develop a clean energy global economy, moderated by Liza Tucker, senior sustainability editor at Marketplace Radio, and featuring Dr. Zhengrong Shi, CEO of Suntech, Jon Krahulik, managing director and global head of Clean Technology Investment Banking at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and Jiang Lin, senior vice president and director of the China Sustainable Energy Program at the Energy Foundation

  • Engaging and relevant workshops, including one on energy efficiency financing and another exploring what’s needed to bring sustainable agriculture to scale

Please join fellow leaders in the corporate, investors, labor and NGO worlds as we develop the path forward to build a truly sustainable global economy. To learn more or to register, please visit
