Keeping the Sustainability Conversation Alive in Colorado

Budget cuts and suspect cabinet member appointments have created a murky future for government-supported climate action. The current administration has effectively put the problem of climate change exclusively in the hands of its private citizens and businesses, even fighting against the interest of the people in many instances. As a result, it is our job to show that we not only support a sustainable society and economy, but we also believe the government has an obligation to ensure the well-being of its citizens and longevity of the human race through environmental protections and continued incentives.

Our goal at the Denver Green Forum is to communicate the necessity of sustainability initiatives in Colorado businesses, while also empowering our attendees to go out and make a difference after the event as citizens. We bring the community together to hear from experts in a variety of industries as they discuss what has helped their businesses or organizations excel in conservation and waste-reduction methods. As an attendee, you’ll be given unprecedented, direct access to high-level members of Colorado’s sustainability leadership. Additionally, our panelists will provide attendees with the knowledge they need to become activists or simply more active in the community. We’ll make sure that we keep the sustainability conversation alive in Colorado!

Uniting Around Colorado’s Green Leaders

To answer your questions, we’re bringing together panels of Colorado’s green businesses and leaders in sustainability throughout the year at the Denver Green Forum to talk about their plans for the sustainable future and how the country’s political landscape may or may not alter those plans. We’ll delve into what motivates these organizations to adopt sustainable practices, and what benefits they have reaped by going green. We’ll also discuss hurtles they’ve faced or battles they have fought to change their industries or public policy, and to lead the way for a greener future in Colorado and America.

We will also showcase Denver’s green businesses at each event with exhibitor tables.
