International Pollution Prevention Summit

Hi everyone
(sorry for any cross-postings)

International Pollution Prevention Summit
October 18th to20th, 2000 Montreal, Canada


The International Pollution Prevention Summit will bring together leading
practitioners and decision-makers from around the globe to take concrete steps
to expand current understanding and implementation of pollution prevention.
Updates on the Summit can be viewed at: http://c2p2.sarnia.com/summit

Summit participants will include members of pollution prevention roundtables and
cleaner production networks. To broaden the impact of practitioners' efforts,
the Summit will also engage financial institutions and investors, educators,
senior corporate management and community leaders - those in a position to
influence change.

Beginning with pre-Summit electronic discussions and followed by working
sessions at the Summit, decision-makers and practitioners will develop plans for
collective action to accelerate the implementation of pollution prevention,

The central themes for discussion focus on how pollution prevention is tied to
real-life challenges of implementing sustainable development.
(http://c2p2.sarnia.com/summit/english/program/action/).  Cross-cutting issues
such as strategies for engaging new partners or technologies and techniques
supporting pollution prevention will be a natural part of discussion in all

action plans that will be completed at the Summit. To help us better organize
