ACCO's 4th annual Defense, National Security & Climate Change Symposium will focus upon the growing efforts of U.S. defense, intelligence and national security communities on assessing and responding to climate change. With the recent publications of President Obama's executive order, a suite of Federal agency adaptation plans and recommendations from the Hurricane Sandy Task Force, this year's program will specifically address preparedness and resilience and the national security implications of climate change.  The Symposium will also address operational and installation energy considerations and greenhouse gas reduction activities throughout the Department of Defense.
