SUMMARY

This year?s conference examines the essential, interdependent elements of launching a sustainable Green Economy. With the American economy and companies of all sizes facing significant domestic and international challenges, executives and entrepreneurs proposing significant green investments and initiatives need to set forth an even more compelling business case to justify such investments.

Yet with the dramatic changes in Washington within the past year, including tens billions of dollars in potential funding for approved projects, other non-equity investment options exist (e.g., grants, loans, government lab assistance).

Two keynote speakers for the Green Business Summit, along with four expert panels, will focus on these major components that affect the business case for Green Investments

Special Introductory Speaker
James C. Dinegar, Jr., CAE, President and CEO,
Greater Washington Board of Trade
