Bill Clinton Is Headliner at Sustainability Enclave
By MIREYA NAVARRO Link
The Sustainable Operations Summit, an annual meeting of leaders from the political, business and environmental spheres, will unfold this week in New York City with Bill Clinton as the keynote speaker.
The conference, from Tuesday through Thursday at the New York Hilton in Midtown Manhattan, is expected to attract some 400 participants to panel discussions on energy-related topics like the management and performance of buildings. The conference will also feature tours and receptions to call attention to New York’s green advances, from the retrofitting of the Empire State Building to construction of the High Line, a public park on the site of a former freight railway line.
No environmental event is complete without a celebrity or two. The actor Don Cheadle, currently the good-will ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program, is scheduled to speak on Wednesday on “Creating Awareness/Building a Culture of Sustainability.” And Mr. Clinton is to address the conference on Thursday about his own climate initiative and President Obama’s Better Buildings Challenge, part of a broader effort led by Mr. Clinton to promote investment in building energy upgrades.
