Wall Street Journal host a select number of exclusive, invitation-only conferences that bring together the world’s most influential leaders from industry, finance, government and policy. At these intellectually rigorous, highly interactive events, there are no prepared speeches; instead, the Journal’s editors lead dynamic discussions with global experts on the most pressing topics of our time, with active contributions by all participants.
In April, top CEOs and investors, pioneering entrepreneurs, environmental experts and policy makers convened at ECO:nomics, The Wall Street Journal’s celebrated conference in Santa Barbara, to discuss and debate the most critical issues facing leaders who are driving change at the intersection of business and the environment.
As always, experts from a diverse range of industries – oil, gas, alternative energy, clean tech, manufacturing, finance and consumer businesses – debunked myths and uncovered new opportunities through dynamic interviews led by senior editors from The Wall Street Journal. Topics ranged from America’s game-changing natural gas boom to China’s globally significant energy appetite to the range of potential power sources of tomorrow that are only starting to get attention today.
