Sustainable Brands has announced the latest addition to their Corporate Member Network: National Geographic.

Launched in 2006, Sustainable Brands is a global network of companies and conferences.

National Geographic joins more than 80 companies, including corporate giants such as Mastercard, UPS, and L’Oréal. The Network comprises of companies that have committed to using their role and influence in the business community to work towards a more sustainable economy.

National Geographic Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, Jill Cress stated,“We are thrilled to join this tribe of like-minded companies using their power to drive a sustainable future. As a global brand with a rich history of scientific discovery and exploration, sustainability is a core tenet of what we do through our award-winning storytelling and science. National Geographic’s Planet or Plastic? initiative—our global, collaborative commitment to significantly reduce the amount of single-use plastic that reaches the ocean by raising awareness, elevating science and education, advancing innovation and inspiring consumer action—is merely one recent example of that. We look forward to collaborating with our fellow Sustainable Brands Corporate Members to drive further impact on the issues that matter most for the future.”

In total, the Sustainable Brands Corporate Member Networks represents over $2.1 trillion in annual revenue and has a combined workforce of over 4.5 million employees around the world.

“National Geographic is an iconic brand that touches the lives of millions around the globe. Through the powerful stories and images they share, all of us can experience the social and environmental issues impacting our world at a personal level and see opportunities to take action. We are delighted to welcome National Geographic as our newest member. They wonderfully enhance our community of purpose-driven brands—a community that believes business prosperity and sustainable lifestyles can go hand-in-hand.” said Darren Beck, Vice President of the Sustainable Brands Corporate Member Network.

In addition to joining the Network, National Geographic will be sponsoring the Sustainable Brands ‘19 Detroit this June.
