Sustainability Symposium within NBB conference highlights key issues

By NBB | November 21, 2011

The 2012 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo will feature a Sustainability Symposium to take place on Feb. 8. This symposium will cover critical issues that impact our communities, our world and future generations. Renowned experts will describe the fundamental challenges we face to make our society, and particularly our fuel supply, more sustainable. Frank explanations of climate change, and energy and food security will illustrate the seriousness of dependence on unsustainable energy. Factual presentations on the impacts of biodiesel will illuminate possibilities that exist to diversify our sources of energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, invigorate local economies, reduce impacts to the environment and increase food security.

The Sustainability Symposium is set up as a conference-within-a conference and attendees need not be limited to those who follow biodiesel issues closely. While biodiesel will be the starting point for discussions, sustainable energy touches every aspect of our society. The more people become informed about these issues, the more likely we are to institute real change for the better. 

Invitations are extended to those who want to learn about domestic job creation and more effective circulation of revenue within domestic communities. Activists who want to ensure sustainable food production can learn about the benefits of producing food and energy side-by-side. For those yet unaware of the seriousness of the greenhouse effect, experts in the field will inform attendees about the urgent need to immediately reduce extraction of fossil fuels.  More than a decade of research by U.S. DOE, USDA, and leading academic institutions will summarize the impacts of biodiesel, and point to its role as America’s advanced biofuel.

Mark your calendar for this important event, and share this announcement with your colleagues, customers and thought leaders. You can also keep up with developments on NBB’s sustainability blog and conference website. We’ll be covering details about these topics and the experts who will join us in Orlando for this important discussion.
