From the article:
'About two dozen business leaders in the international clean technology, renewable energy, utility, real estate, and energy efficiency fields will gather in San Francisco next week to discuss the potential for the proliferation of net-zero buildings around the world.

Agrion, which describes itself as a global network for energy, cleantech, and corporate sustainability, has been quietly working to bring international business leaders together to launch sustainable projects for the last two years and has only recently started sharing its successes with the public.

Sponsoring more than 400 meetings a year all over the world, Agrion has facilitated innovation and project development, said managing director Nick Davis.'
Also:
'If a project emerges from the meetings, it will mean business opportunities for member companies that might provide anything from solar energy or wind to efficienct lighting, windows or microgrid technology, Davis said.

Agrion will stay involved and continue to facilitate the project, but it will likely take on a life of its own and be self-directed at that point, Davis explained.

Agrion members, including representatives from PG&E, Panasonic, California Energy Commission, sever architects, project managers and energy efficiency experts will gather at the San Francisco meeting to discuss the impact of human behavior on net-zero buildings and how to manage for the human element in a green building.'

Yes. Managing for the "human element" in these green buildings which are, more than likely, built for humans would be a good thing. Any time big corporations come together with "corporate sustainability" I get a bit nervous as to what their true intentions are.
