Sustainable Business Expo 2022 (SBX22)


The Sustainable Business Expo 2022 (SBX22), is one of Sustainability Leadership’s Signature Events and the Bay Area’s first tradeshow focused on sustainable business.


This event was a showcase for companies on the cutting edge of the new, green economy. Sustainability-minded business professionals came from across Southern Ontario to learn about the latest in technology, best practices and network on the tradeshow floor! This year’s theme was Net-Zero Emissions broken down into three key emitting areas: Buildings, Energy and Transportation. The theme was explored across a keynote presentation, panel discussions and a workshop.


This year, the Sustainable Business Expo 2022 was hosted on November 3, 2022.




We were happy to host the Sustainable Business Expo 2022 at the Hamilton Convention Centre, located at 1 Summers Ln, Hamilton, ON L8P 4Y2. This venue provides a number of transit options, including walking, cycling, public transit and carpooling.
