As concern about the global environment continues to rise, Oracle is putting sustainability front and center by featuring a special Green Program at Oracle OpenWorld 2008.
Inside the Green Room, Sponsored By Accenture
To help evangelize environmental best practices—including many that also boost the bottom line—the Oracle OpenWorld agenda includes nearly 20 sessions devoted to sustainability. The series, called the Green Room, unites environmental thought leaders, government officials, and venture capitalist firms specializing in green technology.
Trading in the Green Marketplace
For the first time, Oracle OpenWorld also features a Green Marketplace, where attendees can explore leading-edge technologies that can reduce an organization’s environmental footprint.The conference even includes an onsite farmers’ market, where attendees can taste free samples and buy goods from local, sustainable businesses—from fresh produce to coffee and chocolate.
A Greener Conference, from the Ground Up
Once again, Oracle has worked hard to create an event with the smallest-possible environmental impact. Check the Oracle OpenWorld Web site or your Conference Guide for more details on green sessions.
