Sustainable Brands Conference
May 31 - June 4, 2009
Monterey Conference Center
Monterey, CA
SPONSOR:  Sustainable Life Media

Sustainable Brands '09 is an international event discussing the rapid rise of sustainability as a driver for revenue growth and brand equity in the 21st Century.

Green Products and Sustainable Brands

Despite negative world news, the climate is more ready than ever for smart, sustainable brands to pick up steam and take the lead into the future. 

Speakers Cover Sustainable Brands and Social Entrepreneurship

Hear from some of the deepest thinkers who are paving the way for sustainable brands - from futurist and economics iconoclast Hazel Henderson on Building a Win/Win World, to Mathis Wackernagel (2007 Skoll Award Winner for Social Entrepreneurship) on ecological overshoot. From Dacher Keltner (PhD, Stanford, and author of "Born to Be Good") on the evolutionary sensibility of altruism, to Tom Szaky (CEO, TerraCycle) on creating profit from trash. And, of course, that's just the beginning. Get a sneak peek at some of the over 60 faculty we're in the process of bringing together.

"Sustainable Brands 09 celebrates the creativity and innovation of those who are creating new solutions to the many challenges in today's world," says KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz, President and CEO of Sustainable Life Media, organizers of Sustainable Brands. "We are continually inspired by the problem-solving focus and continued optimism in our community. The challenges we all face of adapting in the face of global economic upheaval, environmental degradation and societal inequities are real, but the rewards are great for those who lead the way forward."

This year's program is being curated and hosted by an expanded advisory board of 35 exceptional leaders in sustainable innovation, all of who are Sustainable Brands alumni. The group brings a cross section of perspective and expertise in business strategy, brand leadership, design, materials, culture change and cross-sector collaboration.

Green Business and Sustainable Brands for the Future

SB'09 is where the most forward looking business thinkers, brand strategists, designers, sustainability executives and communications experts gather to craft new strategies, solutions and stories that will better serve the needs of today's - and tomorrow's - global marketplace. Whether we are discussing sustainable bonfire brands like Seventh Generation, Living Homes, New Belgium Brewery and Nau, or large global innovators like Wal-Mart, Coke-a-Cola, Steelcase, Clorox, HP and Unilever.
