“In 2012 the Sustainable Brands community has moved from a community of learning to one of action, focusing on advancing three primary initiatives,”
Several organizations debuted new initiatives at the conference aimed at helping drive the Sustainable Brands community forward. Futerra, an international sustainability communications agency, announced the launch of Planet Brands – an index designed to catalyze the world’s biggest brands to lead on encouraging sustainable behavior. NBC Universal officially launched its “One Small Act” iPhone App, which allows users to set sustainability goals, track their progress and celebrate achievements with friends. On the literary front, Lance Hosey’s book The Shape of Green: Aesthetics, Ecology, and Design was released at the conference.
