American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) is a national coalition of mission-driven businesses, social enterprises, and sustainable business networks working to create a just and sustainable economy. The organizations that have become partners in the Council share a deep belief that the U.S. must build a new economy grounded in principles of sustainability and equity. The partners that have joined in this effort represent more than 20,000 businesses, social enterprises, and similar entities, plus more than 150,000 individual members, many of whom are entrepreneurs, executives or business professionals. These partners include Green America, Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE), Social Venture Network, and many others.
