Shell Oil Former President Offers Practical Energy and Environmental Solutions for 21st Century at ARCHIBUS Users' Conference
BOSTON --(Business Wire)--
Former Shell Oil President, current head of Citizens for Affordable
Energy, and author of Why We Hate the Oil Companies: Straight Talk
from an Energy Insider John Hofmeister will deliver an address, Energy
and Environmental Solutions for the 21st
Century: Pragmatism Versus Politics, on April 30 at 9:45
a.m. at the International ARCHIBUS Users' Conference, to be held at the
Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel.
Sponsored by the network of international ARCHIBUS Users' Groups, the
largest association of peer professionals who are leading the
transformation of their real estate, infrastructure, and facilities
management systems into models of efficiency and cost savings, and
ARCHIBUS, Inc. (archibus.com), developer of the #1 solution for real
estate, infrastructure and facilities management in the world.
The speech is open to the press and Students and Faculty of Boston Latin
School, a public exam school founded on April 23, 1635, in Boston,
Mr. Bruce K. Forbes, Founder, President and CEO of ARCHIBUS, Inc. notes,
"In 1964, Marshall McLuhan wrote, 'There are no passengers on Spaceship
Earth. We are all crew.' Until now, we have been able to borrow our time
on Spaceship Earth from future generations. Unfortunately, based on
recent environmental and sustainability track records, our privileges
should be revoked. Our Keynote speaker, John Hofmeister, is a
world-class champion for the creation of affordable energy with a
relentless desire to educate and bring the Citizens for Affordable
Energy message to Spaceship Earth's crew."
The themes of Mr. Hofmeister's remarks will address one of the greatest
challenges facing society in this early period of the 21st
Century: Will politics or pragmatism prevail in delivering energy and
environmental solutions for the people, organizations, and nations of
the world and at what cost?
Premised on the founding principles of Citizens for Affordable Energy,
attendees will learn that energy can be available, affordable and
sustainable for this and future centuries based on verified supplies,
technologies for the future, increased environmentl protections, and
adequate infrastructure, provided the right steps, rather than
continuing uncertainty, are taken in the coming years and decades.
"We are honored to have John Hofmeister as the keynote speaker and share
his vision and pragmatic concerns about the environment and energy in
our role as the leading developer of software that aids in energy
conservation and sustainability with Ubiquitous Environmental
Sustainability™ (UES™) offerings," says Mr. Forbes.
Mr. Hofmeister notes that, "For 30 years, ARCHIBUS has been at the
forefront as innovator of the world's first integrated workplace
management systems. The data, information, knowledge and wisdom gathered
are enabling the creation of ubiquitous sustainability. We have great
respect for the role that ARCHIBUS has played as a longtime advocate for
Green Buildings - LEED certifications."
Mr. Forbes went on to say, "Spaceship Earth belongs to all of us… I
believe, Mr. Hofmeister's message will resonate with the global ARCHIBUS
User Community, who are responsible for the management of over 15
million properties in over 190 countries around the globe."
