Sustainable Brands is a global community that believes that embedding environmental and social purpose into the core of a brand is the future of business. Due to close mission alignment and its powerful network of marketing, sustainability and procurement professionals, the Forest Stewardship Council has long partnered with Sustainable Brands. In addition to hosting side gatherings at their annual conference, FSC also worked with Sustainable Brands to help get the word out about our new anthem video, One Simple Action.

On May 22-25, 2017, Sustainable Brands is moving to Detroit to focus on “Redefining the Good Life,” and once again FSC is proud to be a partner.

After several years in San Diego, the move to a new location is bold and the program is lining up to be the best ever. In addition, Sustainable Brands is walking its talk by developing an innovative new partnership with the Michigan Urban Farming Initiative, to debut a mixed-use urban agriculture development project today. (View a cool video here.) The project is pursuing LEED Platinum certification, including credit for use of FSC certified forest products.

FSC encourages our partners to attend. As a sponsor, FSC can offer a 20% discount on registrations by entering our code (nwFSCUSsb17d) when you register.

We will also be hosting a reception for friends new and old so please let us know if you’ll be there by emailing Brad Kahn (
