About

Through education and advocacy, the American Sustainable Business Council seeks to influence the creation of public policy that acknowledges the large and growing universe of sustainable and socially responsible businesses and social enterprises.

Mission

The mission of American Sustainable Business Council is to advance public policies that ensure a vibrant, just, and sustainable economy. We do this in two ways: first, by communicating to businesses, policy makers, and the media how a just and sustainable economy is good for business and good for America; Second, we provide a platform that enables our Partners to engage their members (who are executives, owners, investors, entrepreneurs, and business professionals) in the public debate.

Join Dave Rappaport, Sr. Director of Corporate Consciousness at Seventh Generation, Barry A. Cik, Board Certified Environmental Engineer and Technical Director at Naturepedic, and David Levine, Executive Director of the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC), for a discussion of the prevalence of toxic chemicals in consumer products, what leading sustainability companies are doing to provide safer alternatives, and what public policy can do to help chemical produces and manufacturers transition to greener alternatives. Join us for an informative webinar with live video of the presenters Monday, March 14th at 2pm EST. Businesses like Seventh Generation, Naturepedic and others are already taking great strides to create safer alternatives to conventional, toxin-laden products. There is a strong business case for policy that reforms the Toxic Substances Control Act to help companies make the transition to safer alternatives in a cost effective way that could provide jobs at the same time as eliminating toxic chemicals in our consumer products.
