Event Description

Sustainability Summit and Exposition’s Vision

Green enterprise in all of its many aspects will be a major component of future economic development – in Wisconsin, the nation and around the globe.

Much of the world is now in the early stages of an historic transition. A transition from economies that accommodate far too much waste and inefficiency and depend too much on fossil fuels to systems that are much more conserving, efficient and sustainable.

The Sustainability Summit and Exposition recognizes unprecedented opportunities and encourages investment and development in the green sector. We highlight Energy, Water, Lifestyle, Business and Workforce.

The theme of the 10th Annual Sustainability Summit and Exposition in March 2013 is:

Sustainability: An Economic and Ecologic Imperative
