Train the Trainers - Part 2

July 13, 2009, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM PDT

An introduction for CTO Sustainability Mentors to Sustainability best practices for early stage cleantech companies.  Guest speakers Andrew Deitz and Frankie Ridolfi of Climate Earth will discuss carbon accounting and a template for sustainability reporting will be presented that mentors can replicate with each semi-finalist.  After the training, attendees will have a consistent methodology for a quantitative measurement of carbon emissions and understand the data required to complete a meaningful analysis. There will be opportunities for networking before and after the program.
