EcoSecurities and Greener World Media Partner to Make the Greener by Design Conference Carbon Neutral

May 11, 2009

NEW YORK, May 11 /PRNewswire/ — EcoSecurities, a leading company in the
business of sourcing, developing and trading carbon offsets from greenhouse
gas abatement projects, is partnering with Greener World Media and The Global
Executive to neutralize the emissions resulting from their forthcoming
Greener by Design 2009 conference.

This year’s Greener by Design conference is aptly titled ‘Greener
Products for Leaner Times’. Green innovation isn’t about creating premium
products for upscale audiences, it’s about cutting costs, improving
efficiency, improving quality, reducing risk and retaining customers. Keynote
speakers include;

    - William McDonough - the renowned designer and creator of the
      Cradle-to-Cradle product certification system

    - David de Rothschild - the banking heir who plans to sail from San
      Francisco to Sydney in a 60-foot vessel constructed entirely of
      recycled materials

    - Peter Arnell - the acclaimed designer and brand architect whose newest
      creation, the Peapod automobile, recently went on sale by Chrysler

In addition other featured speakers include representatives from well
known brands such as Microsoft Corp, Wal-Mart, Hewlett Packard and Steelcase
Inc. The innovative conference also features hands-on sessions, such as the
experiential “Innovation Flashes” by the global innovation consultant
Strategic Inventive Thinking; and the consultative “Green Guru” sessions,
during which participants meet in small groups to discuss design challenges
and solutions.

EcoSecurities is the official carbon offset provider for Greener by
Design 2009 and as such will calculate the emissions which have occurred as a
result of the conference and retire on behalf of Greener World Media the
equivalent number of carbon offsets (verified to the Voluntary Carbon
Standard and California Climate Action Registry) to effectively neutralize
the carbon emissions.

“Ecosecurities’ innovative solutions to carbon offsets make it the
perfect complement for our conference on product design and innovation,” says

Joel Makower, Executive Editor of Greener World Media and host of the
conference. “We’re pleased to partner with them and to extend their brand and
products to our audience of business executives.”

Steve Gutmann, Senior Commercialization Manager, EcoSecurities states “It
is great to be recognized as the official carbon offset provider for such a
highly regarded conference as Greener by Design. We look forward to working
with Greener World Media to ensure that the environmental impact from this
event is as minimal as possible.”
