Coca-Cola, GE, Office Depot, HP, Wal-mart, 200+ Others Explore Sustainability As Authentic, Transparent and Supportive of Economic Bottom Line

Nov. 24 /CSRwire/ - BURLINGAME, Calif. - November 24, 2008 – Sustainable Life Media, (SLM), the leading producer of sustainable business conferences and newsletters, continues to attract a growing line up of thought leaders and brand innovators to Sustainable Brands International, slated to kick off at the Fontainebleu Miami Beach on December 9.

Newly added visionaries taking the stage include Bob Isherwood, one of the most decorated creative executives in the world and driver behind Toyota's Prius campaign, along with Robert Holzer of Syrup, and Kate Brass of GE, two forces behind the ongoing success of GE's Ecomagination. Andrea Sullivan, Executive Director of Interbrand, and Scott Vitters, Director of Sustainable Packaging at Coca-Cola, have also joined the SBi faculty that now boasts over 60 leaders including executives from Unilever, Wal-mart, Marks and Spencer, Panasonic, Best Buy, Natural Logic, SustainAbility and more. Those committed to be at SBi will gain insight in to the unfolding drivers of sustainable innovation in the US and around the world -- from climate change and materials scarcity to poverty, global economic upheaval and a rapidly changing consumer and competitive landscape. Together those who attend will create new solutions for positive change in the midst of a difficult economy.

At SBi, speakers will share strategies and results in product design and packaging, brand communications, carbon measurement and offsets, waste-management, multi-stakeholder collaboration, and investment strategies that are changing the face of business as we know it. Participants will learn how local and foreign economies from the US to China and India, to Africa, South America and the EU, are driving revenue and brand value while operating more efficiently, saving money and shaping a more sustainable future.

"Collaboration on innovation is the new name of the game, and building strategic partnerships will accelerate solutions and solidify future leaders. We plan for the first time to live stream the conference so that as many people as possible can listen in on conversations that will take place on stage," said KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz, President and CEO of Sustainable Life Media. "Those of who can be there in person, however, will work together for three days to identify ways to help each other succeed."

Corporate practitioners on their way to Miami include Adidas, Amway, Coca-Cola, Dial/Henkel, Ernst & Young, Johnson & Johnson, International Paper, Proctor & Gamble, RecycleBank, US EPA, Williams Sonoma and more. Also attending will be many supporting players in the sustainable brand eco-system -- from top global researchers such as GlobeScan Canada and Havas Media UK, to decorated design innovators and creative talent including Marc Alt + Partners, Gravity Tank and OZOlab, to brand and PR experts like Cohn & Wolfe, Interbrand and Fitch, to packaging innovators such as NatureWorks and Meadwestvaco. All who will attend are committed to sharing their learning while keeping on the cutting edge. Seats are still available, however registration rates increase significantly on November 28th.
