Delivering on Sustainability's Transformational Potential

VERGE DC brings together corporate leaders focusing on a new wave of technological change revolutionizing sustainability. A convergence of technologies for energy, buildings, information, and vehicles, which GreenBiz calls VERGE, is enabling companies to break down organizational silos, and accelerate innovation. This has profound implications for your company's sustainability and business goals.

Join corporate leaders, policy makers, and thought leaders in Washington, DC on March 14-16 at the Renaissance Hotel. You'll be part of a diverse and exclusive group of executives in sustainability, building and energy management, utilities, fleets & logistics, government & policy, R&D, and corporate financing.

At VERGE DC, you will:

  • Learn from the innovators. Get the essentials your company needs to know about changing energy, information, building and transportation technologies.
  • Find your opportunities. Discover where to find the low-hanging fruit in deploying these technologies, where they might already exist in your organization, and how you can quickly get results.
  • Explore new tools and techniques. You'll learn how to effectively break down organizational silos, engage your CFO, and engage internal stakeholders to embrace radical efficiency.
  • Understand the changes. Learn how Big Data can change your company's sustainability strategy, and the new and non traditional partners who can help accelerate your agenda.
