What have people said about this summit?

My greatest regret is that I wasn't able to stay through the entire conference. The discussions were good, with many gems of information to take away. There was a good balance of industry work and NGO contributions, and I felt that most of the participants were willing to listen and learn versus advocating their positions.

Libby Cheney, VP Corporate EHS & SR, Hess

Thank you for a really interesting conference - I really enjoyed it!
