Governor Schwarzenegger and EDF to Recognize Business Leadership in Environmental Innovation

I just received an email from Environmental Defense Fund Inc.:


I wanted to give you a heads up that Environmental Defense Fund is holding an event in our San Francisco office tomorrow at 10:30 AM Pacific time with Governor Schwarzenegger to launch our inaugural report, “Innovations Review 2008: Making Green the New Business as Usual.”

The first-of-its-kind report highlights the latest trends and best practices that demonstrate how environmental sustainability efforts are creating new markets, providing competitive advantages and saving companies millions of dollars. The greatest thing about this report is that it features business solutions that are replicable and ready for implementation across business sectors and industries today.

Other speakers at this event include: Ken Grossman, founder, owner and CEO, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.; Charles (Chuck) Kavitsky, chairman of the Board, Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company; Jonathan Schwartz, CEO and president, Sun Microsystems; Casey Sheahan, president and CEO, Patagonia, Inc., and Richard Swanson, founder, president and CTO, SunPower Corp.

EDF would be honored if you could join us for this event via webcast. The webcast and a downloadable version of the report will be available for you to see tomorrow at: (If you can’t make it, we will be posting a transcript of the event on this website for your reading pleasure!)

Thank you,
