Zero-energy design, food miles, photovoltaics, hybrid technology, and carbon offsets. What do all these words have in common? They are associated with the current trend of eco-jargon connected to going green, or being environmentally conscious. The Environmental Sustainability Conference scheduled at Vanguard University on Friday, January 30th, aims to turn those green buzzwords into practical and effective business practices. The event is hosted by Vanguard University's Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE). Conference keynote speakers are Shaheen Sadeghi, founder and CEO of LAB Holding, LLC, and Pierre Andre Senizergues, founder and owner of Sole Technology, a parent company known for popular brands such as etnies, eS, Emerica, ThirtyTwo, and Altamont. Both men are leaders in bringing environmentally conscious initiatives into their business culture. Sadeghi, the creator of The LAB and The Camp anti-malls, served as president of Quiksilver, and has consulted for numerous Fortune 500 companies such as General Motors, Volkswagen, and McDonald's. Senizergues is a recipient of the Global Green Corporate Environmental Leadership Award recognizing his environmental practices and corporate responsibility by revolutionizing the way Sole Technology does business.
