NEW YORK, March 23, 2005 — Green Trading Inc., the company founded by Peter C. Fusaro and Marion Yuen, has given 10 scholarships to Net Impact students from around the world. The purpose of these scholarships is for graduate business students to attend the Fourth Annual Green Trading Summit to be held in New York City on May 2 and 3, 2005.
The Green Summit (www.greentradingsummit.com) has spawned a green trading community of hundreds of business, government and non profits. This year’s conference promises to be the best ever as the EU Emissions Trading Scheme and the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol have focused even more attention on efforts in the United States.
“The Green Trading Summit is an annual event held to further the engagement of the business community on environmental market formation and seems a likely venue for Net Impact participation,” said Peter Fusaro, Managing Director of Green Trading Inc.
Over 500 people have participated in past Green Trading events. Two books have been created from the conference including the latest Green Trading Markets: The Second Wave to be published by UK publisher Elsevier this spring.
