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).


 From our National allies at the American Sustainable Business Council


The responsible, sustainable business community has experienced explosive growth during the past eight years. Sustainability principles offer real, practical solutions to our nation’s deep troubles of economic inequality, environmental damage and fraying social ties. We have made much progress in changing policy, but we are far short of the critical mass needed to lock in these gains. 

The election of Donald Trump as president presents a huge challenge for those who believe in a sustainable future. We’ll soon see efforts to undermine needed regulations and laws addressing climate change, clean water, equitable tax reforms, health care and workplace policies. But we never expected change to be easy. Entrenched industries have considerable power to control the levers of policy, and they have always presented a formidable obstacle to progress. 

Now more than ever, we need to take stock of our very real gains, reaffirm our commitment leading from a triple bottom line perspective, and advocate in a compelling, courageous, unified and unwavering voice.
The voice of sustainable business has become powerful and is needed more than ever. 

 

Be Strong—Now More than Ever!
