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 Network (ASBN) is a partner to businesses and the investor community to bring collective wisdom and public policy solutions to the systemic issues negatively impacting our society and planet. Founded through the merger of the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) and Social Venture Circle (SVC), ASBN rejects short-term thinking narrowly focused on just shareholder value in favor of a capitalism based on creating long-term value and being accountable to all stakeholders: owners, workers, families, community, environment, state, nation, and world. As a multi-issue, membership organization advocating on behalf of every business sector, size, and geography, ASBN and its association members collectively represent over 250,000 businesses across our networks.
