Ms. Tiscareño-Sato is a sought-after speaker on innovation in the green economy and author of Latinnovating: Green American Jobs and the Latinos Creating Them. She is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, School of Environmental Design. Her global sustainability experience began while leading the Green Enterprise Initiative at Munich-headquartered Siemens Enterprise Networks. She helped enterprises understand the economic and environmental value of collaboration technologies. Once adopted, these solutions dramatically reduced corporations’ real estate needs, energy needs, employee commutes and their overall carbon footprints.
