All Together Now.
If there was a theme for today at the Fortune Green Brainstorm Conference it was, “All Together Now.” Or, perhaps more accurately, “[Almost] All Together Now.”
The day was overwhelmingly tilted toward energy and energy policy.
Environmental leaders, such as Peter Seligmann of Conservation International, Mark Tercek of The Nature Conservancy and Hunter Lovins of Natural Capitalism, and corporate leaders such as David Abney of UPS, Dan Hesse of Sprint, Steve Bolze of General Electric and Rob Walton, Chairman of Wal-Mart, overwhelmingly agreed on the need for corporations, NGOs and government to work together to find solutions to accelerate the rate of progress to find solutions.
