Green To Gold Author Dan Esty To Keynote At Good And Green-The Green Marketing Conference
Hartford, Conn. – November 1, 2007-- Leading green marketing expert and author of Green To Gold Dan Esty will give brands insight into how they can use their environmental strategy to innovate, create value and build competitive advantage during his keynote presentation at Good And Green-The Green Marketing Conference, November 29-30, 2007, Chicago Cultural Center. Good And Green is designed to teach mainstream national marketers the techniques, benefits and bottom line impact of connecting with today’s ecologically-concerned consumers through green marketing efforts.
“Brands that simply see the eco-movement as a trend and do things that are green in symbolism but not in substance are taking a green-washing approach that is fundamentally unsuccessful as a strategy,” says Esty. “Smart companies are making the environment part of their corporate strategy and those that fail to get this message put themselves at competitive risk.”
Esty has consulted for companies such as Coca-Cola, Unilever, Honeywell and Shell and is a sought-after media source on energy, environment and sustainability issues. “Good And Green gives us the opportunity to learn how building an environmental dimension into brand and image can benefit the planet, the consumer and the business.”
Also keynoting will be, Joel Makower, founder/editor of Greener World Media. Dubbed the “guru of green business practices” by the Associated Press, Makower will be sharing his expertise in green marketing strategies. “The most successful companies aren't just aligning environmental goals with business strategy, but are finding creative and authentic ways of telling their stories. At Good and Green, we will be showing the challenges and opportunities companies face as they try to communicate their green products, services, and initiatives to the world in a way that creates business value and competitive advantage."
