    What about Sustainable Brands, which I’d automatically assume is the leading conference for marketing sustainability? Also, Planet Green is also putting on the (new) Good and Green marketing conference this year. Other leading conferences… BSR, Ceres, put on for sustainability/CSR professionals and executives, often the people who are asked to speak at Net Impact’s conference.

    For Marketers, Sustainable Brands International, coming up in Miami, is about as good as it gets. The speaker lineup includes Ray Anderson of Interface, Wal-Mart’s sustainbility guru, etc.
