with leading global companies such as FedEx, Clorox, Cisco, P&G and others. This framework is the
foundation of the Low Carbon Enterprise Executive Workshop Series.
Sustainability = Innovation
quest for sustainability can unearth a mother lode of organizational and technological
innovations that yield both top-line and bottom-line returns.
That quest has already begun to transform the competitive landscape, as companies
redesign products, technologies, processes, and business models.

Greening Point is proud to offer a series of strategic workshops for enterprise
executive teams. LCE has developed a simple but powerful approach for
enabling the low carbon enterprise. Based on in-depth study of leading
innovators among the Global 500 corporations, the approach helps identify,
prioritize and manage the innovations that provide the highest value to business
in the emerging low carbon economy. The framework was published in the
Sept. 2009 issue of the Harvard Business
Review, the world’s most demanding and prestigious business journal.
The LCE vision is that the low carbon economy is inevitable since the worldwide
impacts of climate change must be mitigated. This imperative will require a sea
change in thinking about how to conduct business in this new context.
Despite the current financial crisis and great uncertainty, one thing is clear:
Enterprises that position themselves now for this new reality will be the
ones to prosper in the next year and beyond.
Successful leaders are cultivating new mindsets and models to drive their
strategy and execution in this new economy. Shouldn't your company be one
of the winners?
At this time, the Low Carbon Enterprise Executive Workshops will be conducted
at your headquarters by Dr. Nidumolu in person. As a result, only a very
select group of companies can participate in this set of workshops.
Workshops will be scheduled until the limited slots are taken. Those
companies that act now will gain a unique competitive edge.
