Airports Going Green 2014 Conference @ Westin River North

Since 2007, the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) has sponsored the leading aviation industry forum on sustainability – the annual Airports Going Green (AGG) conference. The conference is held in partnership with the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE), the world’s largest professional organization for airport executives.

The annual AGG Conference has served as a valuable tool for the CDA to educate industry experts, airport and airline professionals, contractors, consultants, environmentalists, and the press on its industry-leading sustainability efforts. Past conferences have covered a diverse field of sustainable initiatives and standards, unique to an airport environment.

Introduction to the State Electronics Challenge
Nov 18 @ 2:00 pm EST – 3:00 pm EST

Join Lynn Rubinstein from the State Electronics Challenge to learn how your organization can reduce its environmental footprint through improved management of electronic office equipment.

The State Electronics Challenge is a voluntary national program, open free of charge any state, tribal, regional, or local government agency, as well as any K-12 school or non-profit organization. The SEC promotes environmental stewardship of computers, monitors, and imaging equipment — from purchasing green office equipment through power management, paper use reduction, and responsible end-of-life management — resulting in measurable reductions in energy, greenhouse gases, solid and hazardous waste, and associated costs.

Attend this introductory webinar to learn how your organization can join the Challenge and benefit from the program’s proven free technical assistance, action plan, implementation tools, and environmental benefit calculations.

Space is limited.
