Former State Controller Steve Westley Keynotes 2019 Silicon Valley Leadership Group Energy and Sustainability Summit

SAN JOSE, CA – Former State Controller Steve Westley encourages us to take lessons learned and push the envelope on cleantech during his keynote address at this year’s Silicon Valley Leadership Group Energy and Sustainability Conference held Friday, June 14th from 8:15 am – 4 pm. Nearly 300 attendees can expect a jam packed agenda with robust discussions and debates about the evolution of corporate sustainability, speeding climate solutions to market and why Silicon Valley leads on climate as well as try to answer the question, “Does California really have its own Green New Deal?”

There is no time to waste to implement technologies and innovations as climate change is accelerating and changing the world and often with disastrous consequences.  Nothing is off the table during four breakout sessions including getting to net zero and reducing emissions from buildings to rising waters and resilience and creating a vision for the future of the San Francisco Bay Area to transformative mobility and creating a check list on the resiliency of companies.
