In August of 2011, we highlighted our green efforts with the first “Accelerating Sustainable Performance Summit.” The one-day summit attracted nearly 200 industry leaders and media members, and featured partners such as Amyris, Panasonic, Safety Kleen, Yokohama and Pacific Gas & Electric. California State Assemblyman Jared Huffman also attended the festivities, which included industry and academic panels, as well as on-track demonstrations and company announcements. Check out the recap video from last year’s summit. Below is the original announcement.
