EBC Environmental and Energy Industry Summit
November 4, 2011 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm
The US economy recovery continues to struggle. Congress is unable or unwilling to pass a jobs bill with infrastructure funding. Massive budget cuts loom at both the federal, state and local level. The risk of a double recession hangs in the air. With these unstable conditions, when and where will future growth opportunities develop for the environmental and energy industries? This annual EBC Business Summit will first provide a reflection on the outlook for the Massachusetts economy and a forecast of the impact of congressional and presidential activities on environmental and energy businesses. Two experts will then present their observations about key government and industry trends for the two major business sectors important to members of the Environmental Business Council:
- Environmental Industry – including Climate Change
- Power and Renewable Energy Industry
Each sector speaker will focus on policy, legislative and regulatory developments that can have a significant impact to your business.
Plan to attend this EBC program and gain a greater understanding of those factors impacting the environmental and energy business sectors and learn how these factors may impact the strategic planning process for your company.
