Not just another sustainability event but one which created a vibe I have not seen, nor felt in my 25 years or so of ploughing the sustainable development till. The Change Agent team are to be hugely commended.”

“The launch of Sustainable Brands in Cape Town far exceeded my expectations on every level. The opportunity in Africa for brands to contribute to shaping a better future for both business and society is palpable, and well demonstrated by the leadership work going on there by sizable companies like P&G, Nedbank, Woolworths, and others is well matched by the spirit of entrepreneurship and the terrific examples of world-changing grass roots innovation taking place there.”
