Attend this webcast and receive complimentary access to the Global Eco-efficiency Jam Report from the IBM Institute for Business Value.

Thank you for your interest and support for the Global Eco-efficiency Jam held in January, 2010. With over 1,600 business executives, government officials, NGO leaders, journalists, analysts and environmental experts from 60 countries collaborating and discussing  best practices for a more a sustainable future, this was one of the most successful jams ever held by IBM.

Now all 2,000+ ideas and recommendations generated during the jam have been analyzed and will be released in a detailed report to be discussed in a webcast on April 21, 2010. This webcast will feature a panel of industry thought leaders discussing the results from the Jam and to share across the audience the best practices, the main opportunities and challenges relating to continued advancement of Eco-efficiency*.

Regardless of your participation earlier in the Jam, this webcast and companion report are sure to provide collective ideas that can help your organization.  The areas of focus in the report and webcast include Green IT / Green Data Centers, Smart Buildings, Sustainable Business Operations, Smarter Cities and Industries, the New Workplace and Raising the Bar - Monitoring, Measuring and Reporting.

With Eco-efficiency poised to become one of the biggest economic games in the next twenty years, you do not want to miss this important discussion and complimentary report on the subject.  

Thanks for your continued support and interest in this topic.  Hope you can join us on the webcast.
