Quarterly Impact Economy Forum: The Energy State



















The Energy State: Louisiana’s Potential Leadership in Natural Gas and Clean Fuel Development

Over 70 organizations came out to our first Impact Economy Forum, co-hosted by the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce, Green Collaborative, and LifeCity. At this Zero Waste event, the group shared our common vision for the Impact Economy. Our second Impact Economy Forum focused on taking action by learning how to navigate state policy advocacy in 2013.

Our next meeting in April will be focused on Louisiana’s natural gas and clean fuel development potential.
