Clean Economy Network Launches in Canada

Leading Clean Economy Group Expands North and Goes Global

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2010) - Clean Economy Network (CEN), one of America's largest national membership-based networking, educational and advocacy organizations, has now become a truly global entity.

The first Canadian Chapter was officially launched last week in Toronto and, based on the turnout at the Chapter's Inaugural Event, the founders predict that the group will help generate tremendous momentum around the advancement of the Clean Economy in Canada. A cocktail party was held at Bay Street law firm Aird & Berlis LLP with participants in the Canadian Clean Economy attending.

"We are extremely excited about the launch of CEN's Toronto Chapter and look forward to partnering with them in extending the influence of the clean economy business community," said Jeff Anderson, CEN's Executive Director. Mr. Anderson attended the event and spoke about the organization's overall vision and how the creation of a Canadian Chapter will help serve to advance CEN's mandate.

"Our decision to launch the first Canadian Chapter was rooted in our recognition that CEN has been by the far the most successful Clean Economy networking group," said Alan Zelnicker, one of the Chapter Co-Chairs. Mr. Zelnicker went on to add that he and his fellow CEN Toronto Chapter members are enthusiastic about their mission to build and grow a strong Canadian presence over the months and years to come.

The Toronto Chapter plans on holding quarterly events and the Chapter Co-Chairs have already begun planning their next event, tentatively scheduled for early December.
