CON EDISON EXPERTS TO OFFER GREEN TIPS TO BUSINESSES
AT SUSTAINABILITY SUMMIT
NEW YORK – Con Edison will provide tips to help businesses go green and save energy at the New York & New Jersey Minority Supplier Development Council (The Council) 2012 Sustainability Summit: Be Eco Sharp on Tuesday, October 9 at the Sentry Center, 810 Seventh Ave. in New York City.
Michael Jones-Bey, director of Con Edison’s Supplier Diversity Program, and Rebecca A. Craft, director of Energy Efficiency and Demand Management, will join a panel discussion on “Energy Optimization & Alternate Energy for Commercial and Residential Properties.”
The Con Edison team will discuss how enhancements in green buildings are creating economically and environmentally sustainable development. They will also discuss strategies for successfully competing for business in the growing industry of green products and services.
“This is a unique conference because it will not only create opportunities for pre-qualified small businesses to market their services to Fortune 500 companies, it will also provide them with opportunities to meet potential investors,” said Jones-Bey, who is also the Summit’s advisory committee chairperson.
“We will showcase our energy efficiency programs, plus identify and recruit minority, women, and veteran-owned businesses that can offer innovative sustainable solutions to better serve our customers,” he said.
Con Edison is a lead sponsor of this year’s Summit, which will include corporate social responsibility teams, government officials, journalists, and more than 300 innovative small businesses. For more information about the Sustainability Summit contact The Council at (212) 503-5663.
