Delivering the Good Life
The premier event for purpose-driven brand innovation. Navigate your brand’s sustainability journey to deliver business success!
The Good Life Initiative
Today’s version of The Good Life appears to be shifting; less focus on money and status, and more towards a pursuit of a simpler, balanced life that is rich with connections to people, community, and environment.
Sustainable Brands has embarked on a three-year journey to raise this conversation around the globe, and to find, share and celebrate brands that are innovating on this new collective vision – The Good Life.
It’s Time for Brands to Deliver
SB’19 Detroit kicks off the final year of this initiative and will showcase brands who are embodying the spirit of balance and simplicity by delivering product and service offerings that realize these new societal aspirations of The Good Life.
Dive into a thoughtfully curated list of exemplary case studies, discover innovation frameworks and practical tools, and find new partners to deliver on your goals.
The New Role for Businesses and Brands
SB’19 Detroit will help brands and organizations map their way forward to a sustainable future by equipping product and service innovation teams to deliver The Good Life, engaging marketing/communications teams to support Good Life values, and evolving supplier relationships with principles of The Good Life.
Sustainable Brands is the global leader in bringing together brand, sustainability and communications teams into relevant conversations about how to drive brand value through sustainability-led innovation.
The world is facing stark limits to resources, and companies are under pressure to reduce waste and create new products and services.
To address these challenges, the circular economy has emerged as a transformational business strategy focused on designing and manufacturing products and materials that have continuous and infinite lifecycles — and it is a $4.5 trillion business opportunity.
Circularity 19 will bring together more than 500 thought leaders and practitioners to define and accelerate the circular economy.
Through inspirational plenaries, interactive breakouts, hands-on design charrettes, networking events and a solutions-focused expo, Circularity 19 will inspire, inform and empower participants to seize the opportunities of the emerging circular economy.
This year’s program will be framed by six program tracks:
– Business Strategy & Innovation
– Circular Cities
– Design & Materials
– Logistics & Infrastructure
– Next-Gen Packaging
– Standards & Metrics
What is your kW and water use per unit of production?
Join leading plant engineers, maintenance managers and energy managers at the 2019 Best Practices Expo & Conference.
The BEST PRACTICES 2019 conference is designed to educate and provide tools to the people who make industrial utility projects happen at a factory. Factory personnel (General Managers, Production Managers, Energy Managers, Plant Engineers, Maintenance Managers) will convene here to identify Key Performance Indicators, learn to measure them and identify projects to reduce kW and H2O consumption per unit of product produced.
All levels of expertise from the compressed air, vacuum, blower and cooling system industries will attend to either share or enhance their knowledge of these systems. Sales engineers, in particular, will be trained on techniques to help their industrial accounts embrace these opportunities. Specifying engineers and utility incentive program representatives will also attend to learn to better advise their industrial accounts.
Key topics will include:
- Track 1: Compressed Air Supply Strategies
- Track 2: Compressed Air Demand Reduction
- Track 3: Blower and Vacuum Optimization
- Track 4: Cooling Systems and Energy Management
