Greenpeace and Gigaom’s Katie Fehrenbacher cordially invite you to a special forum on the sustainability of the IT sector:
Greening The Internet:
How Leading Companies are Building a Green Web

In an important shift, some of the best known Internet companies have recently embraced this challenge head on. Join data center and sustainability experts from Box, Facebook, Google, Rackspace, and other leading companies to hear why they are going beyond energy efficiency and have committed to powering their growth with clean renewable electricity.
Gigaom’s Katie Fehrenbacher will lead a discussion with energy experts and representatives from Internet companies who have already committed to power their operations with 100% renewable electricity, to adddress question like:
-Why are leading Internet companies committing to 100% renewable
energy? -How can Internet companies play an important role in accelerating a shift to renewable energy?
-What are the challenges to powering with renewables, and how have
companies overcome them?
-What renewable energy options do companies who rely on colocation
Following the forum, all participants are invited to take a tour of the Rainbow Warrior III, Greenpeace’s new custom-built, high-tech sailing ship, which will be docked next to the Exploratorium.
