Climate change

Sustainable Brands 2019 Detroit:


We are excited to be participating at this year’s conference and theme - Transforming Brands Through Sustainable Innovation - in Detroit on June 3-6, 2019.

Within a landscape of economic and political volatility, many of the world’s largest businesses are being cast as irrelevant, insincere. Disruptors and D to C brands are redefining the marketplace while established brands are struggling to maintain growth. 

According to research conducted by both Sustainable Brands and Harris Poll, consumers are shifting away from the pursuit of money, status and personal achievement, focusing instead on balance, simplicity, along with greater connection to family, community and the environment as a foundation of a Good Life. Consumers are looking to brands to bring those elements into their daily lives and 80% of them say they will financially support brands who help them live a Good Life.

We will be among peers from the corporate, NGO and academic sectors on the front lines of transformative change and devising long-term sustainability strategies for our planet, people and precious resources for future generations.

Client Spotlight: American Forests

This year, in addition to hosting the Detroit Sustainability Tour with DTE Energy Foundation, American Forests booth #426 will be in the Sustainable Brands Expo Hall.  We hope you will stop by to learn more about how American Forests is making sure healthy and resilient forests can deliver essential benefits for climate, people, water and wildlife. Drop your business card and we will plant a tree on your behalf in the ecosystem of your choosing to help offset your carbon footprint at the conference!

CONCERN WORLDWIDE US: Helps People Living in Extreme Poverty Improve Lives

Reputation Dynamics is excited to work with Concern Worldwide US to support corporate development and marketing.

Concern’s mission is to help people living in extreme poverty achieve major improvements in their lives that last and spread without ongoing support from Concern.

Concern was founded in Ireland in 1968 by a small group of people who joined together to respond to the devastating famine in Biafra. The founders launched a nationwide appeal that raised over a quarter of a million pounds in three months, and “Africa Concern”—a non-governmental, non-denominational, humanitarian aid organization—was born. As their work spread beyond Africa in the succeeding years, the organization was renamed Concern Worldwide to reflect their global reach.

Over the course of nearly half a century, Concern has grown from a localized grassroots movement into a highly respected global organization, now implementing programs in 29 countries reaching 7.4 million people.

Concern’s program areas, with particular focus on helping people recover from disasters, include access to nutritious food and adequate health care, and strengthen their resilience to the effects of climate change.
