On the heels of numerous recent conferences and wide-spread media attention on the energy impact and carbon footprint of consumer products, WSP recently hosted a breakfast seminar in Santa Clara.

Clearly the carbon market has arrived and it’s certainly here to stay. There’s money to be made, the winners and losers have yet to be identified, and for those who understand the business implications of carbon, first movers will be rewarded with clear advantages.
