We are VERY proud to be exhibiting (BOOTH #501) and sponsoring ridesharing for West Coast Green 2008, Sep 25-27, 2008 in San Jose, CA.
West Coast Green is the largest conference and expo on green innovation, with an international audience of over 14,000 influencers and thought leaders. The keynote speakers this year are Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore AND Canada’s own David Suzuki, two of the most preeminent speakers today in the eco-movement!
West Coast Green has taken several steps to reduce their carbon footprint, which many events can learn from, click here for further information.
AND YES of course PickupPal is providing our Eco-Rideshare Program as the official partner for West Coast Green - although it is an international conference, many people attend from throughout Northern California. See our custom Eco-Rideshare page here.
TIPS FOR EVENT GREENING:
1/ Use the PickupPal Eco-Rideshare Program to have attendees and volunteers carpool to the event. Up to 80% of the carbon footprint of any given event is from people traveling to and from the venue.
2/ Think about attending this conference of the Green Meeting Industry Council in Feb, 2009.
3/ Read the article here from the David Suzuki Foundation about what events can do to go carbon neutral.
