Creating Climate Wealth Summit

Creating Climate Wealth Summit, Washington DC, May 3-4, 2011

 
Investing $1.3 trillion each year in green sectors would deliver long-term stability in the global economy, a new UN report has suggested. Spending about 2 percent of global GDP in 10 key areas would kick-start a global low carbon, resource efficient green economy. 
 
Since the oil crises of the 1970s, billions of dollars have been pumped into technology development in the areas of energy efficiency, low carbon energy, efficient transportation, bio-fuels, and other areas. This investment has led to hundreds of breakthroughs that are today cost effective. Yet, full commercial utilization of these innovations and their financial rewards still elude us.
 
The 2011 Creating Climate Wealth Summit (www.creatingclimatewealth.com) series aims to fast-track this amazing wealth creation opportunity—one we can use to create economic growth, entrepreneurial wealth, well paid jobs, and make billion ton (gigaton) carbon reductions.
 
The North America Summit kicks off the series on May 3-4 with Creating Climate Wealth, DC – an invitation only event – providing a unique workshop-driven convening of executives, investors, entrepreneurs, and leaders from the private and public sector. The purpose is to identify specific US pathways to accelerate deployment of green solutions in the face of low expectations and weak mandates. 
 
During the summit, delegates will address ways to bring existing technologies to scale, while meeting employment, economics and sustainability goals. The technologies are spread across seven clean tech tracks: 
Distributed Generation
Energy Efficiency
Island Nations
Renewable Fuels
Shipping and Freight
Sustainable Agriculture
The Future of Person Transportation.
 
Each working track begins ahead of the Summit with a Carbon War Room Research pre-read report on market barriers. Delegates will use their entrepreneurial expertise to problem-solve and technology expertise to build new approaches to delivering high-profit solutions.

Full membership to the Carbon War Room
