On April 20, Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), Federal Communications Commission Chair Julius Genachowski and Sprint CEO Dan Hesse were on hand for the first ever Capitol Clean Tech EXPO in the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C. The Clean Tech EXPO was held in honor of Earth Day and to showcase energy companies, non-profits and telecommunications organizations are showcasing advances in clean energy and environmentally friendly products and technology. BetterWorld was one of the companies invited and we showcased our BetterWork initiative with great response from all who were there.
“With the clean energy technologies I have seen today, it is clear that we are on our way to moving from iPhones to ‘iHomes,’ helping to create a new economy and a healthier planet that will be sustainable, profitable and remarkable,” said Markey.
The Clean Tech EXPO, sponsored by BetterWorld customer and partner, the Clean Economy Network and CTIA, the Wireless Association, in conjunction with Rep. Markey featured BetterWorld and several leading technology companies, as well as cutting edge start-ups who demonstrated the latest in green IT, smart grid technology and energy-saving consumer electronics.
“Today’s event is an example of how corporate and government stakeholders are innovating in ways that move our nation toward a greener economy,” said Hesse. “Sprint is proud to join government, clean tech and green business leaders who are meeting the needs of consumers and the environment through improved manufacturing processes, greener product offerings, consumer-friendly recycling and reuse programs, and more.”
Kudos to CEN, the CTIA and Chairman Markey who spearheaded the effort, it was an informative and telling example of what is coming around the bend as far as technology GreenTech and CleanTech – technologies and changes that are coming sooner than probably most realize. We are excited to be participating in this ongoing effort with CEN, Chairman Markey and the FCC as we bring our BetterWork framework to the mainstream and lead a true telecom revolution!
Clean in D.C.,
