Greening our economy

Today I gave the keynote address at the GreenWest Expo and Conference, a gathering of businesses and consumers that are on the cutting edge of sustainable practices and technologies. The floor was filled with everything from the next generation of electric vehicles to solar water heaters and permeable paving.

These exhibitors and consumers are the pioneers of a new market, one that unites economic growth and environmental responsibility. Going green is now good for the bottom line, and we’re moving toward a more sustainable future and a stronger city. Check out the video from the floor of the Expo below.
