How can information technology and big data help us innovate for a more sustainable future? In this discussion, we'll explore:

The business case for incorporating sustainability as a core value and why accurate environmental data should be considered just as important as financial data when making strategic decisions.
How companies have succeeded in instituting data-driven sustainability programs and discuss lessons for all businesses looking to harness the power of environmental data.
A live demonstration of using the Ecometrics cloud-based sustainability platform to reveal insights in large sets of data and drive sustainable strategic planning.

Ecometrics helps organizations to save money, reduce risk, and grow responsibly. Our two founders and presenters for the event are Michael Zeller and Frances Dacanay, who've been working with companies in the Monterey Bay area to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and operate more efficiently for the last seven years When we're not crunching numbers, you can usually find us surfing, mountain biking, rock climbing, or otherwise enjoying all that Santa Cruz has to offer.
