I recently served on a panel on sustainability at the Sterling Rice Group (SRG)’s second annual forum on innovation in Boulder, CO. I shared some of my research on consumer preferences for different forms of eco-labels, and also talked briefly about GoodGuide. I was joined on the panel by Ivan Barkhorn, Managing Director of Redstone Strategy Group and Catherine Greener, Co-Founder and Principal of Cleargreen Advisors, who shared some of their perspectives and experiences related to corporate sustainability.
I participated in the rest of the event as well, and very much enjoyed the other speaker’s perspectives on innovation, which came from a wide range of both business and academic backgrounds. The talk about Galileo and innovation by an astronomy professor was particularly memorable. SRG is also doing a lot of interesting work itself on understanding the factors that drive consumer demand and society’s evolution, and did a great job of organizing the forum — it was implemented very professionally and creatively.
