Heather Lounsbury, L.Ac. is excited to inteview Brian Back, founding editor & publisher of Sustainable Industries journal. 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. It was a few years before words such as “green” and “eco” would become ubiquitous and embraced by mainstream opportunism, but both Brian and Nik believed sustainable business practices held vast profit potential for business and industry in the region, and that in fact sustainability would be a necessary evolution for business in the years ahead. Today, Sustainable Industries is in a unique position to take the conversation further and to connect the dots between the environmental and social components of the region’s economy, just as we connect the dots between various West Coast industries. Brian Back was one of the first business journalists in the United States to pioneer a beat in “sustainability.” Brian has been a leading expert in topics such as clean energy, green building, environmental technology and other green business sectors. He has researched, written and spoken extensively on economic impacts and trends -- including the role of media -- in these intersecting and rapidly evolving industries. Today Brian serves as President and Owner of Sustainable Industries, and he is a member of the Social Venture Network. Heather and Brian will discuss how businesses are growing green and how you can get involved. www.sustainableindustries.com Call with questions.
