Business Leaders Call for Sustainable Criteria to Infrastructure Plans

Media Release

Washington, DC – Today, the leading policy advocacy group for responsible businesses released a statement about the infrastructure talks between the Trump Administration and congressional leaders. The following may be attributed to Jeffery Hollender, CEO, American Sustainable Business Council: 

“On behalf of our members, which represent more than 250,000 businesses in all sectors across the nation, we call for infrastructure investment plans that are built on sustainable criteria. By prioritizing social and environmental benefits alongside economic and business benefits, we can create a platform for broad prosperity and protect the planet at the same time.” 

The American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) was the first business group to endorse the Green New Deal resolution and the Millions of Jobs initiative. Both proposals represent massive business opportunities for responsible companies to grow and to create and maintain good jobs. ASBC is engaged in both coalitions to represent the responsible business voice in support of the initiatives and to help define the specific policy proposals that impact business. 

The American Sustainable Business Council advocates for policy change and informs business owners, policymakers and the public about the need and opportunities for building a vibrant, sustainable economy. Through its national member network it represents more than 250,000 businesses in a wide range of industries. 

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
