Earth Day at Kyoto Planet: The Sustainable Enterprise Report and

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - Kyoto Planet is pleased to celebrate Earth Day with the launch of two initiatives from the company's publishing division to bridge the gap between industry and the environment.

First, The Sustainable Enterprise Report: Turning Awareness into Action, is a 144-page report containing peer-reviewed white papers, case studies, and interviews. Together, these frame the issues of today's changing world, provide pragmatic knowledge, and make a business case for sustainability.

To accompany the report, Kyoto Planet is launching the website, designed to be the premier web portal for companies to access resources, hear from leaders in their fields, and exchange ideas about sustainability.

"We have partnered with courageous individuals and organizations such as Dr. Bob Willard, Mitsubishi Electric, University of Florida, Nortel, and BearingPoint to present actionable knowledge for business leaders seeking to increase shareholder value and competitive advantage by incorporating sustainability into their enterprise," said publisher Christopher Smith. "The world's largest companies can effect significant amounts of positive change. This report will be their guide."

"Both of these resources will provide invaluable information for companies that want to take the next step and act on their sustainability goals," said Damien Reynolds, Kyoto Planet's founder and chairman. "In a very short time, the Kyoto publishing team has created this report and website that will enable real progress toward sustainability."
