Meeting Overview

Each December, Sustainable Brands hosts a gathering of Chief Marketing Officers, bringing together leaders in marketing from Fortune 500 companies such as Procter & Gamble, Visa, Target, and more. This year, we are pleased once again to use this time to convene the CMO Sustainability Accelerator Roundtable, an industry-wide collaboration led by Adweek, ANA and Sustainable Brands, and powered by BCG.  CMOs and sustainability leaders come together to advance the growth agenda inside their organizations, supply chains and beyond.

The event is held as a part of Sustainable Brands' December Member Meeting, focused on Shifting Customer Demand and Behavior. We welcome attendees of the CMO Sustainability Accelerator Roundtable to attend the full event, beginning with a happy hour and dinner on December 8th. Please note that registering for the CMO summit allows access to the full event. View the Member Meeting agenda here.
