Sustainability at SB'22
We’re committed to reducing the environmental impact of Sustainable Brands conferences by enlisting our community in the sustainable production of our events and improving our host communities’ sustainability initiatives and performance.
As part of the SB Brands for Good initiative, we have developed a series of Nine Sustainable Behaviors that consumers and brands can take together to create positive change. Here is how we aspire to bring each of those behaviors into SB’22.
Address Climate Crisis
Preserve Resources For Life
Foster Resilient Societies
Official Water Restoration Partner
Water use balanced with Bonneville Environmental Foundation’s (BEF) Water Restoration Certificates® (WRCs). BEF provided WRCs for Sustainable Brands’ 2022 Conference. These certificates balance the estimated water impacts from the Omni La Costa resort for four days. WRCs will be sourced from 15-Mile Reach Project.
Plastic Action Partner
RePurpose will remove 100 pieces of nature bound plastic for each SB’22 attendee through Project Saaf Samudra. Along the sprawling coastlines of Goa, India, teeming with tourists all-year-round, discarded plastic food packaging more often than not ends up polluting the ocean and our impact project is a concentrated effort to curb ocean-bound plastic pollution and empower marginalized waste workers in the region. The project ensures that soft plastics which are rarely collected and have very low economic value are intercepted and recovered before it reaches the oceans.
At Sustainable Brands, we are committed to modeling the best behaviors and practices we share with our community. Check back with this page as we add details that further underscore that commitment at SB’22
