NEW YORK, NY. - April 28, 2009 - Benjamin Moore, Whole Foods, SAP, Sprint, AEP and Sharp are among the companies confirmed to participate in an event dedicated to corporate strategies for engaging stakeholders on sustainability in New York. Sustainability Stakeholder Engagement will take place July 15-16 in NYC and will include a special interactive session on how companies are using social media to communicate on sustainability issues. Rob Reed, CEO and Founder of Max Gladwell, and Richard Seireeni, author of The Gort Cloud and founder of Brand Architect Group, are among those participating in this innovative session.

Companies are facing increasing pressure from customers, investors, communities and NGOs on a diverse range of sustainability issues including climate change, water usage, regulation, biodiversity and resource management. Smart companies realise that systematic engagement with all stakeholders is an essential prerequisite for any long-term sustainability plan. Now more than ever, forward thinking corporate leaders recognise the role of stakeholder engagement as a driver for industry leadership, competitive advantage and for future-proof, profitable businesses.

Drawing on real-world examples from insightful corporates and major stakeholder groups, this conference will highlight best practices in the complexities of multi-stakeholder engagement. This two-day, high-level event will chart a course for the next generation stakeholder communication necessary for a sustainable corporate America.

This event is part of Green Power Conferences' series of events called Action for a Sustainable America at which agenda setting companies meet to examine the opportunities and challenges facing organisations and companies who want to systematically respond to the many issues surrounding sustainability.

Sustainability Stakeholder Engagement offers the latest innovations in corporate sustainability engagement with multi-stakeholders including this ground-breaking session on using social media to build corporate green credentials. Attendees will find out what works and what doesn't work when companies engage with consumers, investors, NGOs, special interest groups, communities, and employees on sustainability issues.
