Innovative Business Models for Sustainable Value Creation:

Sustainability can help create innovative opportunities to improve environmental and social performance while making a profit. Companies, start-ups and nonprofits are focusing on new business models to achieve this. A panel of entrepreneurs and sustainability leaders will discuss how their businesses and organizations are using innovation to drive sustainability. The speakers will discuss their challenges - from developing business plans, securing investors and recruiting fellow entrepreneurs all while maintaining their sustainability mission and vision

Join the Sustainable Practice Network’s experts as they explain changing consumer attitudes and behaviors around sustainability, how compelling campaigns frame sustainable products, and the dos and don’ts of green product benchmarking. Hear their predictions for the future of sustainable product development and green marketing and find out whether “green consumption” is myth or reality.
