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!

Reputation Dynamics and #GivingTuesday

Reputation Dynamics (RD) is proud to support #GivingTuesday by forming inclusive partnerships, mobilizing collective action between the for-profit and nonprofit sectors. 


We are committed to building resilient communities, advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) citing no poverty, gender equality, life on land and partnerships among top priorities.  

Public-private sector partnerships will continue to be essential for devising solutions for complex global issues associated with climate change threats. A recent IPCC report has underscored we only have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe and urgent need to cut risk of extreme heat, drought, floods and poverty. 

As we celebrate our national day of giving, it is important to work together collectively to address our pressing world issues. 

Example initiatives to support for the holidays:


American Forests inspires and advances the conservation of forests, which are essential to life.  American Forests has been restoring forests for more than 140 years. And, while we may be the oldest national conservation organization, our work today is more important than ever. Since 1990 alone, we have planted nearly 60 million trees in forest restoration projects in all 50 states.  

Help American Forests reach their goal to plant 3 million trees in 2018, expand tree canopy and improve the quality of life for residents in cities. 


Protect the Endangered Elephant Species - Elephant Art - by Samantha Taylor.

More than 50 elephants die every day from poaching, hunting and other conflicts with people. Purchase a custom designed T-shirt, greetings cards or painting with proceeds benefiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Kenya. 


We remain an integral member of a global economy and challenges need to be addressed on a united front, continuing to learn from other cultures, political environments and devising new approaches for improving the livelihoods of low-income communities.  

Reputation Dynamics welcomes the opportunity to learn more about your #GivingTuesday initiatives, exchange knowledge and explore opportunities to collaborate.

With gratitude,

Samantha Taylor, Founder and President of Reputation Dynamics
