Business Leaders Call for Sustainable Criteria to Infrastructure Plans
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. www.asbcouncil.org
