ASBC Honors the Legacy of Richard Trumka

Media Release

The American Sustainable Business Council stands in solidarity with workers as we grieve the loss of AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, and our thoughts are with the Trumka family. Creating a stakeholder economy that respects and protects workers’ rights,  champions safe workplaces, and delivers fair wages is the crossroads where High-Road workplace employers and workers meet. Business leaders and workers together must continue to create a sustainable economy, one for which Richard Trumka fought every day.  We will honor his legacy by continuing to fully support the PRO Act.

The American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) partners with business organizations and companies to advocate for solutions and policies that support an equitable, sustainable, stakeholder economy. We are a multi-issue, business organization advocating on behalf of all sectors, sizes, and geographies of industry. ASBC and our association members collectively represent over 250,000 businesses across our networks.

We are coalition-focused in our approach to solving the pervasive and systemic issues of climate and energy, infrastructure, circular economy, and creating an inclusive stakeholder economy, all seen through the lens of racial equity and justice. We are changing the rules by which business is done so it is better for all people and the environment
