The Chesapeake Sustainable Business Council is a business-led educational and advocacy organization whose mission is to promote sustainable business viability, awareness, and impact within the Chesapeake region (MD, DC and VA). 


A strategy for an emerging organization like CSBC is to work with effective, established and pioneering organizations like our allies at the Instutite for Local Self-Reliance.  ILSR is an example of an outstanding group that for over 40 years has been proving that many solutions exists that can benefit the common good - and still work well within our economic system.  This video is a great summarie of how one organization can do so much to help organizations like CSBC expedite real change.

Tell Maryland legislators to hold Big Chicken accountable!
