PepsiCo, Nau, Wal-mart, Johnson Diversey and Under the Canopy among sustainable brand innovators scheduled to share their global strategies for success

Oct. 21 /CSRwire/ - BURLINGAME, CA. - September 29, 2008 - Sustainable Life Media, (SLM), the leading producer of sustainable business conferences and newsletters, will host Sustainable Brands International (SBi), the first ever conference dedicated to bringing together sustainable product innovators and brand experts from around the world, in Miami Beach, FL at the Fontainebleau Resort Miami Beach from December 9-11. The conference will help participants identify and capitalize on opportunities for consistent, sustainability-driven revenue growth and brand value in global markets.

SBi participants will include senior business strategy, product design and brand and sustainability executives from around the world. Leaders from innovative businesses, design & brand agencies and NGOs from throughout the EU, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Japan, India, and South America are already committed to speak at the event. The primary goal for the participating speakers is to encourage a broader shared perspective of the rapidly-evolving opportunities for global sustainable brand builders. Both leading US-based multinationals, as well as some of the most innovative smaller US brands with global reach and experience, will also share their learning.

Just as with the highly regarded Sustainable Brands '08 Conference that convened over 550 business leaders in Monterey in June 2008, SBi will address rapidly unfolding market dynamics, as well as internal and external issues of building a successful sustainable brand. Unique to SBi, however, will be the emphasis on comparing and contrasting international market development strategies and idiosyncrasies, as well as varying consumer sentiments, unfolding changes in regulatory environments and opportunities for environmentally and socially preferable supply chain partnerships across continents. The conference will provide a unique forum for exchanging information with peers interested in international sustainable brand opportunities. It will also serve as a showcase of innovative sustainable brands from local markets worldwide.

"In the past 12 months we've seen an explosion of innovation for sustainability around the globe," said KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz, President and CEO of Sustainable Life Media. "While some are in 'wait and see' mode in the face of current economic uncertainty in the US, many innovators continue to press forward with confidence that regardless of a temporary slowdown, socially and environmentally savvy businesses will continue to take an increasing lead as the commitment to sustainability becomes a new competitive requirement world-wide."

Sustainable Brands International is again supported by a wide-ranging array of media partners including Fast Company, the Financial Times, PR Newswire, CSRWire, Cohn & Wolfe, Brandweek, GreenBizJournal, TriplePundit, JustMeans and dozens more. 300 attendees are expected at the inaugural event located in an easy to reach, price conscious and sustainability-sensitive venue conducive to creative conversation and relationship building as well as visioning and goal setting for the coming year and beyond.

"Sustainable Life Media is committed to creating an environment where forward-thinking companies from around the world can share ideas and their vision for a better tomorrow," added Vikoren Skrzyniarz.
