Fortune Brainstorm Green 2012

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Brainstorm Green, Laguna Niguel, CA, USA

 

Clean Tech

Presented by City of Cheng Du

 

New trends are emerging on a global basis. China is becoming a leader in green technology. The Middle East is investing heavily in the next generation of sustainable intellectual property. Western companies are anxious to compete in green R&D, but economic woes in Europe and lack of political will in the U.S. are getting in the way. Where will most of the new green technology—and thus the jobs and wealth—be created?

 

Discussion leaders:

Liz Economy, C.V. Starr Senior Fellow for China and Director, Asia Studies, Council on Foreign Relations

Fred Krupp, President, Environmental Defense Fund

Theodore Roosevelt IV, Managing Director and Chairman of Barclays Capital Cleantech Initiative, Barclays

Zhengrong Shi, Chairman and CEO, Suntech

 

Moderator: Andy Serwer, Fortune
