Sun, KGO, RFK, Jr. Team To Throw Eco-Party
Sun Microsystems, KGO radio, and environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. were a formidable foe to eco-apathy at an environmental education event, Eco-Live, at the San Francisco Concourse Exhibition Center Saturday. Kennedy drew a rapt crowd for his keynote address, which played out the theme that good environmental policy is good economic policy. Sun Microsystems, which recently created a position for VP of Eco-Responsibility, had executives on hand to talk to the press about how its energy-saving servers, data centers, and telecommuting programs are saving the earth — and the bottom line. KGO radio news personalities helped spread the word, in person and over the airwaves. This Eco-Live podcast was commissioned by Sun Microsystems.
