This September, Chicago will host a gathering of 20 top companies to share their climate change and sustainability strategies at the Corporate Climate Response conference. Manufacturers presenting include Caterpillar, Ford, BP America, Abbott, Time Inc, Motorola, Walgreens, Anheuser-Busch, Wal-mart, Dow, McDonald's, IBM, AIG, Excelon, Intel and Baxter Healthcare.
Corporate representatives will be discussing a variety of topics related to emissions reduction including carbon footprint and life-cycle analysis, energy efficiency, waste management, fleet management, green power and RECs, carbon offsetting, emissions trading, and engaging the public.
Along with the fundamentals of climate action, companies will also be exploring the need for national carbon targets with members of the United States Climate Action Partnership (USCAP) present.
National and state regulatory experts will also be coming to Chicago to update companies on what to expect from upcoming regional and federal actions on carbon emissions. Organizations currently assisting corporations to set their own carbon reduction goals including WWF, NRDC, and Environmental Defense will also be participating. The UK government-funded Carbon Trust will also be present to discuss its recently announced carbon labelling scheme, which attempts to calculate the embodied emissions of individual consumer products.
Corporate Climate Response is being organized by Green Power Conferences and takes place on September 25th and 26th at the Courtyard Marriott Downtown in Chicago.
