Described by Rolling Stone magazine as the "Pied Piper" of Mayors for his inspirational leadership on sustainability and climate change issues, Mayor Nickels is an excellent addition to this conference program.

Action for a Sustainable America will bring together leaders in corporate sustainability to examine how they are using sustainability to redefine corporate strategy and drive management practice. The aim of this event is to help companies develop the systems, strategies and frameworks that will successfully equip them for the challenges and opportunities now being presented by regulation, resource scarcity and climate change.

The event's speaker list has over a dozen CEO and Chairmen presenting including senior representatives from Microsoft, Boeing, Starbucks, Lafarge, New Belgium Beer, Kettle Foods, The Holland Inc, End Footwear, ShoreBank Pacific, Gray's Harbor Paper, Nestle Waters North America, fymi, Bonneville Environmental Foundation, gDiapers and more.

Along with corporate case studies, this event offers the very latest updates on regional, national and international climate policy developments affecting business. Washington State’s mandatory greenhouse gas reporting initiative - which may end up as the model for national GHG reporting – will be discussed in detail, for example. Janice Adair, Special Assistant to the Director of the Department of Ecology for the State of Washington will be participating in this event along with other experts in mandatory GHG reporting and climate policy.

Action for a Sustainable America is an excellent opportunity to network with and learn from those leading the transition to clean, green and profitable business practices.
