EDF Climate Corps is an interesting group. In essence, they are here to help us all accelerate our energy goals. Those goals, of course, can be quite varied. But, we all have them--efficiency, renewables, smart grids, etc. And they are all important to a world trying to move to a low-carbon economy.

There's much more, though, to the EDF Climate Corps story and it is very well told to us today by Ellen Shenette, Manager of EDF's Climate Corps. Ellen's group works with over 450 business and non-profits. That collection of great companies has achieved record levels of carbon reduction while increasing their operating efficiency. They have improved relations with their employees and value chain. They have set and met aggressive goals on charting a greener, more profitable course.

Question for you is, how did they do? How did EDF help? What was the ROI? Why, as an example, is McDonald s investing so heavily in sustainability, and what should that teach us?

Perhaps just as important, EDF is giving us keen insight into the staggering growth of jobs within the green economy? Do you think new era has dawned? Are you excited about the future? Would you like to work with an EDF Fellow and help change your company and world?

We invite you to spend some time here with Ellen and EDF Climate Corps and then set a new road to transformation in your life and the lives around you.
