Dear GreenBusiness Works EXPO 2008 Attendee, Welcome to the GreenBusiness Works EXPO 2008! Your attendance at this important event is representative of our company’s belief that there are people in communities, nationally and internationally, who want their work to combine good business sense and responsible treatment of our environment. Each day we show that our practices can be a reflection of our values, which is the mission behind the first GreenBusiness Works EXPO. GreenBusiness Works EXPO 2008 is an environmental event offering innovative instruction and best practices on topics ranging from sustainability programs to products that support environmental stewardship. The programs conducted during this two-day conference are designed to show how “going green” can preserve our environment, as well as provide a dynamic return on investment for businesses and communities. Once you learn how to go green in the breakout sessions, visit our exhibitors on the trade show floor and develop new business relationships with them. Take these new relationships with you to the office and get down to sustainable business. As with any event or organization, we all have a lot to learn and further to travel. To ensure the EXPO is an eco-conscious event, we have put several plans in place to deliver on our commitment. For this event, the Cobb Galleria Centre worked (continued on next page)

(WELCOME LETTER continued) diligently with us to implement our green meeting requirements; Atlanta Community Food Bank will be the recipient of our food waste for composting; the badge you are wearing is compostable; Canvas Systems supplied us with laptops for meetings rooms so we could reduce handouts; our electrical consumption is being metered for us and the pre-event planning meetings and your data to attend is being compiled. We have contracted with Renewable Choice Energy, a leading provider of renewable energy and carbon offset credits, to calculate our footprint. As a commitment to transparency in our business practices, we will share our environmental impact and our off set totals with you post event. I would like to thank our lead sponsors, SouthEast LINK, the Home Depot Foundation, Canvas Systems, Broadcast Atlanta and New Fields for their generous support. In addition to the tremendous contributions they have made to this event, they are all shining examples of organizations that “walk the talk� when it comes to sustainable practices. This EXPO would not have come to fruition without the help of our well-connected advisory council and steering committee. Their advice, council, relationships and indefatigable energy, and creativity have been vital. Generous thanks goes to Sue McCray for her support in the foundational development of these groups. We have developed some very special working relationships with organizations that share a common commitment to caring for the environment. These include GA Hotel and Lodging Association, Building Office and Management Association of Atlanta, German American Chamber of Commerce, Partnership for a Sustainable GA and Southeast Green. These organizations stepped up and promoted the EXPO to their stakeholders, believing in a shared vision for educating and advocating environmental sustainability.

The printing of our program is generously donated by Canterbury Press and in keeping with our commitment to an ecoconscious event, printed our program on FSC certified paper with eco-friendly ink. We also have visitors and guests from beyond our borders who are exploring ways to do business with our community. The Atlanta International Trade Mission has joined us for our opening day and we welcome them to our city and our event. How do you thank a team that dug deep, worked tirelessly, sweated the small stuff and laughed when we needed it? I applaud the GreenBusiness Works Expo team which includes KPK & Company, our PR and marketing communication firm; Cathy Llewellyn and VAST Consulting, our web design and interactive marketing firm; loaned Southeast LINK executive Jodi Consolino; all-around Green Girl-Atlanta, Esther Ayers; and Sandra Cummings, programming guru with Southeast Green. Most of all, I would like to thank you for your attendance. Without your presence, none of this would be possible. We are grateful you are here and appreciate the opportunity to be of service to you. We hope you enjoy learning at the GreenBusiness Works Expo 2008 and I personally encourage you to take at least one lesson from this event and implement it. If we all do that, we can change our businesses, our communities and our world for the better. Sincerely,

Stephanie Stephanie Armistead General Manager

TuesDAY, OctOBER 7

Green Development & ROI: Achieving Positive Results 10:00 am | Room 101 The social benefits of green building are generally accepted as good, worthwhile and needed. However, there is a wide range of positions regarding the cost of green buildings which tend to be fuelled by speculation or fear of the unknown rather than concrete data. Like all buildings, some are expensive but most are not. The cost directly associated with green buildings can be divided into four broad sectors; the green building consultant, the design, the construction and the life of the building. All of these areas have the potential to increase or reduce project costs thus affecting ROI. This session will focus on these elements and point out how they combine to maximize the ROI for a green building project. Current industry data and local examples will be cited. Presented by:

Jeffrey Ross-Bain, Smith Dalia

Saving on IT through e-Waste Minimization & Proper Technology Asset Management 3:30 pm | Ballroom C IT manufacturers regularly introduce upgraded versions of their technology, oftentimes a newer and better version each year. The regularity of the IT upgrade process creates constant pressure on IT organizations to replace their existing equipment in an effort to stay ahead. The demand on IT organizations to provide access to data is only increasing and users continuously expect their systems to run faster and faster. With these demands piling up, manufacturers are incented to accommodate their customers, resulting in excess IT equipment. This process leads to a constant and predictable IT Lifecycle: Purchase – Maintain – Dispose. Not adhering to environmentally sound processes surrounding this lifecycle can be detrimental to both the business and the environment. Alternatives and strategies exist to create huge IT cost savings, while concurrently reducing or eliminating the e-waste impact around the globe. The focus of Canvas Systems’ panel discussion will be placed on electronic “take-back” trends and business implications, legal considerations and savings, all while staying green.

In 2005, Missy joined Sheri Henshaw with Keep Bartow Beautiful as a part time position partially funded by the Georgia Forestry Commission. This is where she found her purpose. The office of Keep Bartow Beautiful was changed to the Office of Environmental Management Programs Coordination in 2007 and Missy was hired full time.
