Fortune Brainstorm E: Where Energy, Technology, and Sustainability Meet brought together the smartest people we know who are operating at the forefront of the convergence of technology, energy and sustainability, including CEOs and senior executives, investors, policy makers, environmentalists, and thought leaders. We’ll challenge one another to explore the disruptive technologies and the new business models that will be needed to thrive in this age of rapid change. In two action-packed days, we showcased the people, companies, ideas, and strategies that will bring about the transformational change the business world needs.
Speakers included: Zipcar President Kaye Ceille, Former U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, Sidewalk Labs CEO Dan Doctoroff, PG&E CEO Tony Earley, Ford Motor Executive Chairman Bill Ford, Paulson Institute Vice Chair of Climate and Sustainable Urbanization Kate Gordon, GMO Co-founder and Chief Investment Strategist Jeremy Grantham, TerraPower CEO Lee McIntire, The Kitchen Co-founder Kimbal Musk, Coca-Cola Chief Sustainability Officer Bea Perez, Barclays Managing Director of Investment Banking Theodore Roosevelt IV, and Virgin Galactic and The Spaceship Company CEO George Whitesides.
If business is to help solve the world’s biggest environmental problems, and do so profitably, corporate executives, environmentalists, and politicians will need to innovate and collaborate, think big and act boldly. The second annual Brainstorm E built upon the distinguished legacy of Brainstorm GREEN, long the premier conference on business, sustainability, and green investing. It’s the optimal place to deliver fresh thinking, actionable solutions, and unparalleled opportunities to build top-level relationships.
