has been holding its Brainstorm Green
conference for 6 years now, but things sure have changed a lot during that time. This year the event, held in Laguna Niguel, CA, attracted more CEOs than ever before, more women than ever before (hallelujah to that!), and incorporated real discussions and collaborations that could possibly manifest into sustainable change. We pride ourselves on being pretty knowledgeable when it comes to sustainability, but when you're in the company of people like Segway inventor Dean Kamen
Chief Sustainability Officer Steve Howard, Panasonic
North America CEO Joe Taylor, iPod inventor Tony Fadell
, environmentalist Harrison Ford
Chief Sustainability Officer Bea Perez, NRG
CEO David Crane and musician will.i.am
, there's always more to learn. Read on for an easy-to-digest synopsis of some enlightening (but possibly hard-to-swallow) themes and ideas we picked up at this important event.
