This year thoughts:

Terry March“My view of the Conference is that it is a timely reminder that "Green" corporate initiatives are not only essential for the survival of the planet, but also make good business sense. The Conference will be a meeting of minds and a unique opportunity to learn from the experiences of the experts and practitioners.”Terry March, Vice President - Chartered Institution of Wastes Management



Peter Barta
"I am very glad that this conference reached already its third edition! It is a proof both of the success it had at its previous editions and of the market demand for such events that encourage the integration of CSR activities into the development strategies of the companies. I hope that Romanian companies shall take into consideration more and more this initiative that, on one side, gives them an added value on the European market and on the other side contributes to the development of the communities into which they are activating." Peter Barta, Executive Director - The Post Privatization Foundation
