Chestertown, MD — The Center for Environment & Society at Washington College and Clean Air-Cool Planet are pleased to announce a business seminar: “Thinking Green: Energy, Carbon, and Your Bottom Line.” The event will be held Thursday, November 13, at 3 p.m. in the Litrenta Lecture Hall, in the Toll Science Building, on the campus of Washington College. Green drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served in the McLain Atrium immediately following the seminar.
The risks, costs and opportunities associated with energy and climate change issues are becoming increasingly important in both the public and private sectors. Learn more about strategies for colleges, businesses, and municipalities to go green, and why it is important; what the results of the national elections tell us about the future of a green economy; and, what actions we might expect from the federal government in meeting these economic and environmental challenges. Scheduled to talk are: Rafe Pomerance, President, Clean Air-Cool Planet; Jenn Orgolini, Sustainability Director, New Belgium Brewery; Erica Shingara, Environmental Services Director, Gaithersburg, MD; and Albert Allen, President of Educational Facilities, Sodexo.
