SB'22 San Diego

October 17-20, 2022 | Omni La Costa

The Premier Event for Purpose Driven Brands
Advancing Brand Transformation for People, Planet, and Prosperity

Sustainable Brands 2022

Increasing brand value in a progressively strained global environment requires a rapid re-tooling of business as usual.  Siloed ways of working and seeing the world are no longer effective in a world where complex challenges require equally complex solutions. SB’22 San Diego brings together and enables sustainability, brand, and innovation leaders to drive successful brand transformation that ensures readiness for tomorrow and wins in the market by delivering meaningful value in today’s context.

The time is now to move beyond incremental reduction of negative impacts and to adopt new approaches to economic and innovation frameworks that will restore our ecosystems and establish a healthier and more resilient global society.  We prepare for our future by understanding our past, and SB’22 San Diego will bring our community together to pool our collective insights and reflect upon major discoveries that inform our vision and path to a better future.

[In the moment] I had to simply listen, but I need to really re-listen (again and again), and then share, plan, and act. I love being a part of the Sustainable Brands community.
