Meeting Overview

Sustainable Brands Corporate Members meet in person each December to discuss how we can shift cultural norms and inspire our customers to adopt more sustainable behaviors. This year we’re getting a boost from two highly influential partners who will join us – Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) and solutions providers.

CMO Summit: This meeting marks the second annual CMO Summit, where our Corporate Members' top marketing and branding executives join us to engage in this endeavor. They will share the opening session of the day with all meeting attendees, then segue into a separate, invite-only summit session among peers for the bulk of the morning. Through strategic dialogue, they will explore how member companies can collectively leverage the strength of their respective brands to make sustainable living more attractive and attainable at scale. Participating CMOs may cap off their experience by rejoining all meeting attendees for lunch.

Affiliate Members: This meeting also marks the inaugural gathering of Sustainable Brands Affiliate Members, a new sister network for solution providers within the SB community. They will share the opening session with all meeting attendees as well, then join the Corporate Members for a collaborative session the rest of the morning. Following a joint lunch, Affiliate Members and Corporate Members will break into separate tracks for the afternoon to focus on how each can effectively nudge customer behavior from within their own sphere of influence.

The #BrandsforGood movement emerged from compelling conversations held at these December meetings the last two years. This coalition of brands and solution providers, many of them members, has committed to working together. They are harnessing their collective reach, resources and influence to unleash the power of brands and make sustainable living the good life of tomorrow. During the meeting, you’ll receive exclusive updates on #BrandsforGood, learn what’s on the horizon, and find out how your brand can get engaged.

Join your fellow members this December to explore how we can influence customer behavior on an unprecedented scale as we make the shift to a sustainable future.
