Attend this session and ask all the questions you have about carbon cap and trade, emissions, and carbon as a profit center. The GreenHall Meeting will address issues, opportunities and challenges companies and governments will face with pending legislation.

John Wells, President and CEO of Interface Americas, to deliver opening Keynote address

John WellsInterface has long been acknowledged as a leader in sustainability with their visionary chairman, Ray Anderson, taking an early leadership role in environmental stewardship. “So Right, So Smart”, the wonderful Interface documentary, became Ray’s mantra and John, President and Chief Executive Officer of Interface Americas, is instrumental in making the business of sustainability a profitable platform for Interface’s numerous business units. John has put in place programs and metrics to help Interface companies achieve their sustainability mission and goals in three parts – financial, environmental and social.

“Doing well by doing good” – a term that refers to doing financially well by doing what’s right by the environment – has long been an Interface strategy. John will share how a business strategy on an environmental platform doesn’t take from the bottom line but adds to it. In these economic times, now more than ever, companies need to heed and incorporate these lessons learned.
