The week is finally upon us and we could not be more excited!
Sustainable Brands 2017 Detroit, taking place on May 22-25 in Detroit, Michigan, will bring together more than 2,000 global business change makers who challenge their brands to succeed in the new sustainable global economy.
Purpose driven brands are transforming the global economy by designing new product and service offerings that meet evolving societal aspirations. Sustainable Brands is home to the global community of courageous optimists who are reshaping the future of commerce worldwide.
