Sponsored by dozens of organizations, industries and corporations alongside the Ministry of Environmental Protection and environmental organizations, it is expected to draw some 700 participants.
Sessions will include: setting a national environmental agenda, environmental regulation, green branding, environmental risk analysis and cleantech as a key to growth. Guest speakers include Stanley Greenberg of Greenberg Quinland Rosner Research and Martin Kace, founder and president of EMPAX.
Green Commuting: This March 30, launches a green commuting competition, aimed at encouraging employers to promote alternative means of transportation to work, including car pooling, car sharing, public transportation and walking.
The competition is part of a larger project aimed at shifting Israel’s commuting patterns away from the private car. For this purpose, a Hebrew guidebook for employers on green commuting was recently published.
Be there, or be green with envy. For more, see the Ministry’s website. (There’s been a flurry of green events this March in Israel. Any connection to St. Paddy’s Day?)
