Event Details

Sustainability has multiple definitions and is freely used by many to describe their business or community.  But how do we really know how far we have come or when we are sustainable in San Diego? With the added expertise of the following special guests, we’ll delve into some of the Metrics that have been developed in the areas of energy, water and transportation.


  Jacques Chirazi
Clean Tech Initiative Program Manager, City of San Diego
Jacques Chirazi is the Program Manager for Clean Tech Initiative for the City of San Diego. He is responsible for promoting, fostering and coordinating strategic alliance and collaboration among local, regional, state and federal institutions to develop and execute a clean technology business attraction strategy.   His focus is the creation of economic growth and environmental sustainability by developing a clean technology cluster in San Diego.  Jacques received a Master degree from UCSD’s Graduate School of International Relations & Pacific Studies with an emphasis in International Environmental Polices
Barbara Burton
President, The Burton Company
Barbara is a published author and speaker whose work focuses on ethics, branding and the social, environmental and financial (triple bottom line) responsibility of the corporation. She presented leadership training to CEOs and managers on how to introduce sustainability. For those with ongoing sustainability programs, she designed programs to expand, measure and report sustainability programs and results.

Barbara delivered speeches and conducted training on sustainability-related topics including: Creating a Sustainable Vision, Stakeholder Engagement Methods that Work and Effective CSR Reporting. She is the former chair of the Metrics Task Force of the San Diego Regional Sustainability Partnership (2008-2010) and worked with the Task Force to develop core metrics that could be used to measure the sustainability of the San Diego region.

Dan Noble

He has more than 20 years of environmental market research and consulting experience in water, recycled water and recycled organics. Dan also has directed comprehensive environmental and water industry studies for both federal and international agencies.

Please join us and our panel of distinguished guests to discuss how sustainability is measured, here in San Diego and around the world, because when it comes to this topic the, "I don't know where I'm goin', but I'll know when I get there," approach probably will not work.
Additional Details:

Drinks and snacks will be provided. Up to three hours of free parking is available with validation at Horton Plaza, or street meters, green and yellow curbs are free after 6pm.

We look forward to meeting and sharing the best of San Diego's green community.
