Sustainability at Oracle OpenWorld

By Evelyn Neumayr

Leading businesses - not to mention individuals - recognize that environmental responsibility is good business. Well-thought out and well-structured environmental practices deliver triple benefit: to people, profits, and our planet. IT, as a central part of most organizations' business strategies, plays a pivotal role in developing environmental initiatives.

Any Oracle OpenWorld attendee interested in learning how to use Oracle products to reduce both their organization’s environmental footprint, as well as their costs, should attend one of the many sustainability sessions being held at the conference.

If you can only attend one sustainability-focused session, this is the one not to miss, where you can learn about innovative sustainability practices from customers on the leading edge.

Eco-Enterprise Innovation Awards and the Business Case for Sustainability
Wednesday, October 3, Moscone West 3005
10:15 - 11:15 a.m.

If you can attend several sessions that have a sustainability focus, look here to find the listing of sessions that drill down into a specific product, where the discussion will focus on how that product can help achieve sustainability while improving enterprise operational efficiencies.

Regardless of size and scope, all efforts are worthwhile. To learn more, go to the Sustainability Matters blog.


The Eco-Enterprise Innovation Awards recognize customers and their respective partners who leverage Oracle solutions to support their green business practices in order to reduce their environmental impact, while improving business efficiencies and reducing costs.

Oracle's Chairman of the Board Jeff Henley and Chief Sustainability Officer Jon Chorley will be presenting the 11 winning customers with their awards.

Following the awards ceremony there will be a panel discussion with Oracle executives and the winning customers discussing the environmental and business benefits of their initiatives.
