The time has finally come! OG’ 11 kicks off November 10th-11th at the stylish, eco-friendly Los Angeles Center Studios.

Attendees will be greeted by a unique twist of nature and an exciting opportunity to walk through a tornado with downtown Los Angeles as its backdrop! Designed by Gensler to interpret this year’s conference theme of “Accelerate” and continue the experiential nature of OG, this tornado has been constructed from one ton of reclaimed wood provided by American Reclaimed and built by Carey Brothers Construction.

 There will be panels and speakers, including the founder and chief designer of Fuseproject Yves Béhar,  showcasing the sought-after opportunities, profound innovations, and trends accelerating the new green economy.

 Don’t miss the exclusive chance to experience the thrill of the next step in the future of mobility is anything but just another electric car. The BMW ActiveE exemplifies the harmony between zero-emission technologies and driving exhilaration. American Apparel will soon be announcing the launch of “Open Factory,” a program that highlights their sustainable manufacturing practices so be sure to check out the skilled American Apparel sewers create organic cotton t-shirts from “scratch.”  Not only will attendees get to watch this super cool process, the will also get to take one home as a memento!  Between panels and workshops, attendees can partake in a mid-conference bike ride with Tern Bicycles test-rides or relax in the Bottlehood lounge and enjoy the splendor of their repurposed products made from bottles donated by local restaurants, bars, and events.

    comScore is proud of its partnership with Trees for the Future, and the 3 Million trees (link to http://blog.comscore.com/2012/04/comscore_plants_3_millionth_tree_as_part_of_trees.html) that have been planted as a result of this partnership so far. Since 1988, Trees for the Future has helped thousands of communities in Central America, Africa, and Asia improve their livelihoods by restoring degraded lands to sustainable productivity. The program is also active in the U.S., educating students and communities about global issues, the environment, and energy efficiency. This partnership is a great example of how business and environmental interests can overlap and create value for the broader global community.
