[GreenYes] Sustainable Products Training
Dear Friends & Interested Parties:

RE:  September 10-11 Sustainable Products/Clean Vehicle Training
Hosted by the City of Austin & State of Texas

This event provides the critical tools to identify sustainable products, particularly building products and vehicles, as determined by their impact on the earth and society from raw materials extraction to their final use or reuse.

Please see the announcement below for this exciting event.  For more information, go to:

Enron Corp. has donated Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) and Carbon Dioxide Emissions Credits to offset 200% of the emissions generated by the Sustainable Products & Clean Vehicle Training© in Austin, September 10-11, thus improving Texas air quality.  This donation also qualifies as a Cleaner and Greener(sm) Certified event.  The Renewable Energy Credits will be derived from a new wind power project in Texas, thus helping to support cleaner electricity generation in the Lone Star State.  The carbon offsets reduce emissions of greenhouse gases which play a major role in global climate change. Enron provides fixed-price electricity, including renewable power, to customers throughout the United States.  Other sponsors of the emissions offset include Think Energy, Cleaner & Greener Certification, & Sustainable Products Corporation, which are all presenting at the Program.

Also, please pass this message on to others in your organization and sphere of influence to help transform our markets to a sustainable economy.
