GREGORY LONG:  Okay. So like the presenters and moderators before me, I want to thank Tom Duggan and Donna Miskin and all the Treasury & Risk team for all their help and support and the privilege and honor for the second year in a row being asked to moderate and host the Best Green Strategy. In fact, I think it’s in its second year, so we’ve done both of them, and we’re very honored to do that, especially the panel, who I’ll get to introduce really shortly. I feel very, again, honored to be here.

I do have a special reason to thank them above and beyond some of my predecessors, so if you can bear with me for a quick short story. I inherited a new manager in March who wanted to learn a little about what our go-green strategy and what my team was all about, and so I was real excited to talk about my team and promote us. And before I even got a word out, she held up her hand and said, ‘Now, I know you’ve had a lot of success, and I know that this environmental treasury strategy has been very well received, but it’s been a couple of years: Do you think it’s mature?’ So now anyone who’s ever run a line of business or a project, hearing the word, ‘mature,’ my mind immediately went to how many zeros do I have in my bank account, and can my parents’ basement be retrofitted to fit my wife and three kids? So luckily, I only had to hedge for a couple of seconds there, because like the three gentlemen beside me, I had a great go-green story to tell, and you’re going to hear a little bit about it. I promise to keep it quick ’cause I certainly want to get to these presentations. So Tom and Donna, thank you for not making me move to my parents’ house, I appreciate that.
