Sustainability Initiatives in the Enterprise Reaches “Tipping Point” – Sustainability Professionals Come Together to Discuss Actionable Strategies
The Green Enterprise Unconference will provide an open forum for discussions and collaboration on sustainability, best practices and implementation strategies.
San Francisco, CA – November 24, 2008 – Forum One Networks, a strategy and research group specializing in communities of practice, will lead an innovative “open space” unconference on December 3rd to discuss pressing green and sustainability issues in the enterprise.
The Green Enterprise Unconferece is well timed as green and sustainable initiatives are key aspects of 2009 planning. Justin Yuen, President of fmyi, and former Senior Manager in Corporate Sustainable Development at Nike talks about why it’s a good time to drive sustainability in the enterprise, “I’ve been involved with sustainability for ten years, and today we’re at the tipping point for systemic change within organizations. Now, there’s an awareness, enthusiasm, and encouragement for true integration across the organization into people’s day to day work.”
According to Yuen, “Fundamental change that results in a bottom and top line benefit doesn’t happen with only a few committed individuals. You need everyone innovating together.” The Green Enterprise Unconference will provide the attendees with actionable strategies to take back to their teams to help drive collaborative innovation.
Advisors for the Unconference span multiple sectors, and include, Autodesk, Random House, GreenIT, Swirl and Green MBA at Dominican University of California.
Participating organizations include: Google, Cisco, Sun, Yahoo!, GreenIT, Random House, Accolo, Resources for Environmental Protection, Positive Impact Partner, Inc, Sustainable Silicon Valley, Goodwill Industries, Acterra, CarbonFlow, Clean Tech Group, and many more.
