Sustainability 2.0: Harnessing the Power of Social Media to Promote Change (at Social Media Week)

Tuesday, September 20 at 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM  |  Latham Watkins Downtown Office in Los Angeles

At the Sustainability 2.0 event we will discuss how social media can motivate sustainability decisions – both decisions by individuals and decisions by companies. This will be an interactive panel discussion from 3-5 followed by a networking reception.

About Sustainability 2.0

Polls tell us that people want to buy ‘green’ products and are willing to pay more for it – but when push comes to shove – most people don’t.

But we know there are growing environmental problems that we need to solve. The changing climate, increasing air and water pollution, rising energy prices, and ongoing water supply problems are all driven by choices that people make. It doesn’t matter what you buy – cars, cosmetics, electronics and food all impact the environment – they all impact the environment. What does matter is how much you use – especially energy & water – and how much you waste. These have large impacts and global implications. With social media, consumers have more power to affect change in companies than ever before. This panel will highlight the following:

How do we connect the dots?

Do informed consumers make more sustainable choices?
How does social media influence consumer behavior and get people to demand more sustainable choices?
How will companies respond?

Collaborative Purchasing: Making Solar Simple, Affordable and Social

Research into the peer effects of solar purchasing decisions show that solar is contagious.  Emerging models tap that power of the crowd by creating group purchase programs within businesses and other organizations — with the result of increasing demand, reducing complexity and lowering the price of going solar.  Learn how organizations of all kinds are establishing these programs to provide a valuable employee perk and meet Corporate Social Responsibility goals. Presented by Jessie Denver of GroupEnergy, this webinar will explain the mechanics and results of these innovative collaborative purchasing programs.

Accelerate: Global Cleantech Conference

October 11-12 in San Francisco

Accelerate is a two day summit designed to explore the cleantech phenomenon that has inspired entrepreneurs, captivated policymakers, and attracted billions of dollars in funding from both the venture capital industry and some of the largest companies in the world.

Accelerate will examine the impact which the cleantech revolution is having on big business and society as a whole, and why cleantech is no longer a sector of technology, but rather a filter through which all the processes of civilization are being fundamentally upgraded.

Accelerate will connect the cleantech elite—CEOs, VCs, corporate investors, government officials, and other influential people from the cleantech community around the world—challenging them to present investment ideas and entrepreneurial innovations that not only promise environmental sustainability and resource abundance, but also deliver the basic necessities of life—energy, water, food, shelter, transportation and waste management—at lower unit costs. Such breakthroughs will spur economic growth and development, increase productivity, and raise the standard of living in countries all over the world.

Accelerate will take place at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, the largest Platinum LEED certified building in the world.

Solar Power International

October 17-20 in Dallas

Solar Power International (SPI) is North America’s largest, most comprehensive solar power trade show and conference. This annual, business-to-business event was the first of its kind in North America and grows bigger and better every year.

Nearly 24,000 professionals from 125+ countries attend. With one out of five attendees coming from outside the United States, SPI is truly a global event.

Former Tesla Battery Expert Leading Lyten Into New Lithium-Sulfur Battery Era — Podcast:

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
