      "Green Industries for a Green Region"
      May 14
      Presenters: Russ Read, Kettle Foods; Roby Roberts, PPM Energy; Tim
      Smith, SERA Architects
      Panelists: Nik Blosser, Sustainable Industries Journal Northwest
      (Moderator); Stuart Cowan, Portland Development Commission; John
      Haines, Mercy Corps NW

      Sustainable industries have emerged as a part of our regional and state
      "brand identity." This runs this gamut from green power producers and
      organic food producers where sustainable practices are explicitly part
      of their business model to firms in other industries who elect to adopt
      certain green elements into existing operations. Presentations by
      industry representatives will be followed by a discussion with a panel
      of experts in economic and community development representing the
      public, private and non-profit sectors. They will be asking what makes
      it "pay" for these firms to do the right thing and why do they choose to
      do it here?
