During the 90-minute session, Sheila Brody and Karen Sinclair Drake will discuss how consumer demand is making sustainable and ethical business practices as important as the green products themselves. Sinclair Drake will also address the transparency that exists today as a result of certification, blogging and social networking and explain the perils for “green washers” who underestimate consumer intelligence.
