Welcome to the World Green Summit 2012 Dear Delegates, On behalf of our team, our sponsors and our partners, I want to welcome you all to the inaugural World Green Summit taking place during the historical 20th anniversary of the United Nations Earth Summit: Rio+20. In spite of our global economic crisis, there has never been a bigger opportunity than today to affect and change the course of our economy to a more sustainable and prosperous one. Indeed we are living in very exciting times, at the convergence of an increasingly connected world with decreasing renewable energy costs, disruptive business models, and new smart and radical clean technologies, which will revolutionise the way companies, cities, regions, nations and societies use and consume resources. The global green economy is in full swing and it is our objective to help develop it. Over the last three years, we have been successful at creating high-level summits at the nexus of green business, finance, and governments. In that short timespan the World Climate Summit has become the most prominent business conference in parallel to the UNFCCC COP. The World Green Summit aims to do the same for the global green economy, by offering a business, finance, and government forum to progress this green economic transformation, build new public private partnerships, and showcase new green projects, funds, products, technologies and deals. During this inaugural summit we will put these ideas into context and action. Our partners and sponsors will be sharing past experiences and promoting existing and future solutions. In light of this, we want to invite you to share any new projects, initiatives, and funds that you may have with all our stakeholders. Please join us in this exciting new global economic transition, because ultimately, ‘the future we want’ is down to us: and it is being built right now. I wish you all a wonderful, inspiring, and productive event and hope to see you all at the second annual World Green Summit in 2013. Yours sincerely,

Michael Mathres, Director

MEET THE REVOLUTIONARY WHO WANTS TO ACHIEVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. THE ZERO-EMISSION VEHICLE. IT’’S WHAT’’S NEXT FOR US. When Mirco Schwarze heads to work, his only aim is to build a zero-emission vehicle. At the BMW plant in Leipzig, he is much closer to his goal now that the BMW ActiveE is going into production. This electric vehicle is another stepping stone in our BMW E̔cientDynamics programme –– a range of technologies that has already helped us save more than 3.4 million tons of CO 2 . When the BMW i3 launches in 2013, Mirco Schwarze will reach another milestone on the road to electro-mobility. Then he really will be able to claim he achieved absolutely nothing –– even though he actually started a revolution. The BMW Group is the world’’s most sustainable car company for the seventh consecutive year. Find out more about the Dow Jones Sustainability Index sector leader at

The sustainability battle will be won or lost – in the cities. Up to 30% energy savings; up to 15% reduction of water losses; and up to 20% reduction of travel time and traffic delays are just the start. A smart city is efficient, sustainable and livable. At Schneider Electric, we help build the vision, starting where inefficiency hurts the most. We deliver expert solutions in energy, mobility, water, buildings and public services - as well as information management systems. We bring in our recognized integration capabilities to improve overall city operation and efficiency. We tailor these solutions to cities’ unique needs and help design innovative financing models. And we partner with others. At Schneider Electric, we walk the talk. Tania Cosetino, President, Schneider Electric Brazil
