This year, Wealth for the Common Good became a partner of the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC), a powerful coalition of business networks committed to building a vibrant, just, and sustainable economy.
While our focus continues to be on taxes, ASBC is working with business networks and organizations to promote policy change in a range of areas – from financial reform to business taxes. Collectively, these networks represent more than 30,000 companies or enterprises and 150,000 executives, owners, entrepreneurs, investors, and business professionals across the United States.
At Wealth for the Common Good, we believe business people and investors have a powerful role to play in promoting shared prosperity, so we’re excited to work alongside a number of partners to amplify these voices in current policy debates.
ASBC is mobilizing its networks to call for the creation of a Consumer Financial Protection Agency. Learn more on their campaign site. The recently-launched Toxic Chemicals Campaign calls for reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act, and ASBC is helping to organize a business-NGO forum on this topic on June 3 in Washington, DC.
Will you be at the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE) conference later this month? Look for our joint session “Unchambering National Business Policies.” – with ASBC and Business for Shared Prosperity -and join the conversation about the role business voices can play in creating policy change.
