Company leaders like you can tell policymakers about the needs of green, responsible, and innovative companies.
With a little help from this Guide.
You already operate, donate, and vote in a way that matches your values. This Guide can help you step up your game as a business leader.
When you tell your company’s story to media and lawmakers, you challenge the cynical narrative that the struggle is “polar bears vs. jobs” or some other false choice.
You know you have an inalienable right to petition your government.
And you know the stakes have never been higher.
We hope you’ll take this opportunity to strengthen your business voice, and be heard.
About The Authors
Founded in 2009, the American Sustainable Business Council advocates for policy change and informs business owners and the public about the need and opportunities for building a vibrant, sustainable economy. It represents more than 250,000 business owners, executives and investors who believe in the triple-bottom-line of people, planet, and profit. The organization has deep expertise and a long history of accomplishments in rallying conscious business leaders to create policy changes at the local, state, and federal level.
Key victories include the 2016 passage of the Lautenberg Chemical Safety Act, after eight years of work by ASBC and its Companies for Safer Chemicals Coalition, which made significant improvements to our dangerously outdated chemical policy. On sustainable workplaces, ASBC’s High Road Workplace campaigns for paid leave and family leave, and its work on fair pay with Business for a Fair Minimum Wage, have resulted in legislative victories across the country. With strategic interventions and full-scale campaigns, ASBC has also helped business leaders make the sustainable business case for worker ownership, fair tax policy, small business capital access, clean water, sustainable agriculture, diversity and inclusion, gender equity, and more.
Like an Indivisible Guide for business leaders, this free PDF represents the best advice from the lobbying experts at ASBC on how to make your voice heard, plus insights about working with the media from the team here at Conscious Company.
