NEW YORK –Today as our nation celebrates Earth Day, CraigMichaels is excited to announce several noteworthy additions to the upcoming Sustainable Operations Summit taking place June 3-5, 2007 in Albuquerque, N.M.

As previously announced, former Vice President Al Gore will be the headliner at this exclusive summit. Additional keynote speakers include Rick Fedrizzi- President, CEO & Founding Chairman of the US Green Building Council, Martin J. Chavez- Mayor of Albuquerque and Andrew Winston- Co-Author of the Bestseller Green to Gold. The executive summit, produced by CraigMichaels, Inc., is an invitation-only event that will bring together leaders from the nation’s largest corporations, cities and states, universities, school districts and healthcare organizations to promote initiatives that benefit both the environment and the bottom line.

“Mr. Gore was the ideal person to set the tone for this summit, which will address critical initiatives such as green building, renewable energy, environmental management systems and various other measures that can increase operational efficiencies and contribute to a reduction in our environmental impact,” says Michael P. Owens, producer of the summit.

Confirmed panel speakers to date include some of the nation’s foremost experts on sustainable operations and hail from such organizations as Intel, Citigroup, Kaiser Permanente, the City of New York, Staples, Los Angeles Unified School District and Ohio State University.

“With the U.S. being the largest consumer of natural resources and largest emitter of greenhouse gases, it is imperative that our nation’s leading organizations incorporate ‘green thinking’ into everyday operations,” says Owens. “This summit will help them achieve that.”

CraigMichaels itself has made a strong commitment to reducing its impact on the environment.

“As a company whose business results in the travel and congregation of thousands of people each year, we realize that we can be part of the solution,” says Owens. “From our procurement strategy, to offsetting our carbon emissions and eliminating handouts in conference sessions, we are continually identifying and evaluating our procedures to improve our environmental performance.”
