Executives and officials from every sector of the U.S. economy along with representatives of the American Trucking Assns. (ATA) will join together on Capitol Hill, Tuesday, Oct. 12, for the Consumer Energy Alliance’s (CEA) 4th annual Energy Day. The event was developed to address how the trucking industry as well as a wide range of other consumer-oriented industries are developing and implementing strategies to conserve energy and improve efficiency while continuing to develop America’s traditional and alternative energy resources.

Sustainability will take the spotlight at this year’s event. CEA will release its “Sustainability Report 2010: Private Sector Leadership in Energy Efficiency, Conservation and Sustainability” and will hold a forum prior to its annual Congressional Reception.

The Sustainability Forum, complemented by the release of the report, will feature CEA affiliates, industry stakeholders, government officials and leading experts discussing sustainability initiatives aimed at boosting energy efficiency, conservation and responsible energy management.

The Sustainability Forum will take place from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and the Congressional Reception will follow from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. EDT. The events will be held at 325 Russell Senate Office Building (Kennedy Caucus Room) in Washington, D.C.
