Joel Makower

In this session from the Corporate Ecoforum, executive editor Joel Makower hosts a panel exploring the question of "how do companies operate in a world in which energy, water, materials, toxicity, carbon intensity, become barriers to growth?"

Joel is joined on stage by Ray Lane, a managing partner at venture capital giant Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers; Mindy Lubber, the president of Ceres; and David P. Steiner, CEO of Waste Management.

The Corporate Eco Forum is an invitation-only annual gathering of senior executives from Global 500 corporations. This unique forum is designed to produce actionable insights based on "real-world" successes that will deliver ROI today and in the future.

Held at The Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco on September 8-9, 2008, the Annual Meeting combined on-the-record CEO plenary panels with smaller, not-for-attribution, interactive peer-to-peer sessions. CEF members will work together to drive collective understanding of best practices, operationalize eco strategies and tools, and stimulate innovation.

About contributor Member: PT (David Alexander) PT (David Alexander)
   Web site:

Member: PT (David Alexander) My lifelong pursuit, since age 18, has been to live more fully and find wisdom. This has involved studies with Zen masters, Tai Chi masters, and great psychotherapists while achieving my license as a gestalt therapist and psychoanalyst.

Along the way, I became aware of how the planet is under great stress due to the driven nature of human activity on this planet.

I believe that the advancement of human well-being will reduce societies addictive behaviors, and will thus also help preserve the environment and perhaps slow down the effects of global warming and other major threats to the health of human societies.
