Sustainable Industries is an independent media company producing this web site, an award-winning bimonthly magazine, industry newsletters, Webinar series, and the Sustainable Industries Economic Forums. Our mission is to create a new B2B media experience – informing, inspiring and connecting sustainable business leaders.
The concept for Sustainable Industries was hatched in Portland in the summer of 2002 by business journalist Brian Back and Nik Blosser, president of Celilo Group Media. The first two years of monthly issues, which carried the masthead Sustainable Industries Journal Northwest (that’s 11 syllables, mind you), were produced in a newsletter style, 16 pages long, with both color and black-and-white pages.
Over the next several years, the team of stakeholders at Sustainable Industries worked exceptionally hard to create an innovative media company that today serves as the only one of its kind: a fiercely independent, regionally focused, advertorial-free, business-to-business media company that reaches far beyond "green" to provide news, tools and analysis on the greatest economic development opportunities of our lifetime. Sustainable Industries has emerged as a highly trusted voice and vital catalyst for business on the West Coast and beyond.
Today, the print magazine is gone, and the company's offerings have widely expanded. In 2011, Sustainable Industries merged with longtime allies TriplePundit to create a digital media and events powerhouse with a seasoned leadership team.
