Thought Leaders Converge in Cobo Center to Foster a Sustainable Society
Cobo Center had an exhilarating few days in early June when thought leaders from corporations around the world gathered to move closer toward a circular global economy at the Sustainable Brands Detroit 2019 (SB19Detroit) conference.
It is the second time Cobo Center has hosted the event. The first time was in 2017.
Sustainable Brands is an association of many of the world's largest businesses that are invested in meeting social and environmental challenges as an essential driver of brand innovation, value creation and positive impact.
Sustainable Brands 2019 at Cobo Center was the first zero waste event for the venue, a real milestone for Cobo's Green Committee. Established in 2011, the Green Committee began with a Green Venues Michigan certification from the state of Michigan, and went on to achieve the Event Industry Council's ASTM/APEX certification in 2015. It was the ninth U.S. venue to do so.
"Cobo Center's commitment to sustainability and reducing its environmental impact was an important factor in why we wanted to bring our global event to Detroit," said David Fiss, director of business development, partnerships and event strategy for Sustainable Brands.
