Thanks for the summary of sustainability conferences. (Perhaps some of your readers might be interested in the 'Green to Gold' Seminar on February 12).

As the President of a consulting firm and the owner and author of The Green Market, sustainability is a part of my daily life.

As the economy is in recession, Green is entering a critical stage in its life cycle and now more than ever we will need to disseminate the facts about our environment and the role we can play in addressing these complex issues. However, to endure the kind of economic volatility we see today sustainability must be woven into the fabric of our social conscience.

Thanks again for this post and for your promotion of Green.

The Green Market ( provides information and resources for people seeking to help Green to grow. My blog covers topics from CleanTech investments to the Obama Effect and includes a comprehensive Green Link Library. I welcome your comments and ask that you consider adding my link to your blogroll.

Best Regards,
