(11/14/08) (SAN FRANCISCO) -- The National Environmental Partnership Summit has a call for speakers for its annual summit that will be held at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco on May 4-8. The summit will focus on pollution prevention and environmental assistance, including greening your business, research and new clean technologies, regulatory updates, resource efficiency, and community engagement success stories, with sustainability as an underlying common thread in all tracks. The theme of the Summit theme is “Harnessing the Power of Collaboration.” The call for speakers is out now through December 5 and can be found at: http://www.environmentalsummit.org/AbstractForm.cfm


    The Summit is an interdisciplinary marketplace of environmental ideas and activities, forging connections between ideas and people, in systems - not just specialties. Several national communities come together to learn from one another at the summit: pollution prevention, compliance assistance, performance track and other environmental management innovators. By design, the summit offers a wide breadth of content to a diverse range of environmental professionals.

    This year, session selections include:

    Sector-based Environmental Assistance
    Energy Efficiency
    Policy and Regulation Updates
    Finance and the Role of the Financial Sector
    Achieving, Communicating and Measuring Sustainable Performance
    Addressing Climate Change
    New, Clean Technology
    Practical Take-it-Home Tools

    Last year's summit, held in Baltimore, was attended by more than 750 corporate and facility environmental managers, and federal, state and local pollution prevention specialists, voluntary program managers and compliance assistance providers. The summit partners that organize the event include the U.S. EPA, the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable and the Performance Track Participants Association.
