GoGreen ’09 – cultivating sustainable business
Wednesday, October 7th
GERDING THEATER @ THE ARMORY/Portland, Oregon
2009 Featured Speakers
Ted Kulongoski/Governor of Oregon
Winning reelection in 2006, Kulongoski took the lead on renewable energy by establishing a new standard that will require 25 percent of the state’s electricity to come from renewable sources by 2025. He continued his fight against global warming by requiring greenhouse gas levels to be reduced to 10 percent below 1990 levels by 2020. Governor Kulongoski also led the charge to create a Rainy Day fund – the first in the state – so that Oregon is prepared to weather the next economic downturn without being forced to make drastic cuts to critical services for Oregon’s children and families.
Kate Brown/Oregon Secretary of State
In 2008, Kate was elected Oregon’s 24th Secretary of State and was subsequently appointed to chair the Oregon Sustainability Board by Governor Kulongoski. Secretary Brown has led successful efforts to make Oregon’s state government open and accessible, helped to fund a comprehensive review of Oregon’s ethics laws, spearheaded legislation creating a searchable online campaign database and reformed Oregon’s initiative process.
Jeff Cogen/Multnomah County Commissioner
Jeff’s vision and hands-on leadership brought the Northwest’s largest solar energy project to Multnomah County. By the end of 2010, three Multnomah County buildings will produce 1 megawatt of electricity from their rooftops, saving tax payer dollars and reducing greenhouse emissions.
Mark Perry/Director, Product Planning and Strategy, Nissan Americas
Mark’s teams are responsible for Versa, Sentra, Altima, Altima Coupe, Maxima, Quest and the Electric vehicle programs, PLUS cross carline strategic adoption of emerging technology, powertrain and safety applications for Nissan and Infiniti.
