VANCOUVER, Apr. 11 /CSRwire/ - Offsetters Climate Solutions, North America’s leading carbon management solutions provider, is pleased to announce that they are partnering with Sustainable Brands to sponsor the Sustainable Brands 2014 San Diego conference.

This event is an intersection for sustainability, brand and innovation professionals who come from around the world to be inspired, engaged, and equipped to succeed. As a result of their sponsorship, Offsetters will be helping to reduce the carbon impact of more than 2,800 delegates attending the June 2 - 5, 2014 conference, ensuring that SB’14 San Diego will become a carbon neutral event.

“We are excited to join other brand leaders like Disney, World Wildlife Fund, National Geographic, and Starbucks,” says James Tansey, CEO of Offsetters. “As Sustainable Brands’ official carbon offset partner, we will be working with the event organizers to assess and offset their carbon footprint, as well as to encourage delegates to examine best practices for reducing consumption within their organizations.”

During the four-day conference, Offsetters will also be profiling their advisory services, which helps organizations and corporations determine carbon and water footprints, carbon reduction strategies, product life cycle inventories and reporting. Examples of Offsetters work may include case studies from the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games, and from some of the world’s most prestigious organizations, including lululemon athletica and Aimia.

“Since its inception, Sustainable Brands has been committed to reducing and managing the environmental impact of our own events, sharing our learning and making a positive mark on our host communities,” states KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz, Founder of Sustainable Brands. “Our event planning team works closely with all vendors and stakeholders in accordance with leading international event industry standards to ensure a successful outcome. We are pleased to be working with Offsetters as our official carbon management solutions provider.”

Founded in 2006 on the principles of system thinking and cross-functional problem-solving, the Sustainable Brands community fully realizes that opportunities around innovation for sustainability cannot be realized to their full potential by any one department, team or visionary leader working alone. Today, the organization hosts a number of conferences worldwide including Brazil, Turkey, Argentina, Malaysia and the United Kingdom. A list of additional conferences may be found at www.sustainablebrands.com.

“Sponsoring Sustainable Brands allows us to showcase Offsetters own thought leadership to business innovators who are shaping the future of commerce world wide,” says Tansey. “We fully expect to return from the conference with new relationships and new business opportunities, and are proud to be showcasing our own expertise and innovations.”
