When it comes to influencing public policy it’s better to be at the table than on the menu! And that’s what ASBC’s Annual Summit is all about – making sure that the voice of sustainable business is heard. Join us for a unique hands-on experience of hearing from and meeting with key members of Congress and Administration officials!

With Congress and the White House searching for ways to strengthen the economy, address climate change and break the political paralysis, the role of sustainable business has never been as important. The 2015 Summit brings together responsible business leaders from across the country to influence the policies that will help make the American economy more vibrant and just. As the presidential election draws near, the Summit offers valuable insights into how policy will evolve in 2016 and how your company or organization can help shape the agenda.


“It’s the most dynamic, hands-on opportunity I’ve ever experienced to have access to legislators, learn how they really think and move the dial towards creating a
policy agenda that really matters.”

—Jeffrey Hollender, co-founder Seventh Generation

Why Attend:
Spend focused time with some of the country’s leading policymakers, and tell government leaders what needs to happen on key policy issues: climate, tax, family leave, minimum wage, sustainable agriculture, small business capital access and other issues.

Create valuable working relationships with elected officials and regulators that can help shape policy outcomes in Congress and State Legislatures.

Gain visibility in the media as you tell your business story.

Network with and learn from over 100 leaders of the most innovative and responsible businesses in the country.

Secure valuable skills in organizing, media relations and advocacy that will allow your company/organization to have a greater impact in advancing your sustainable policy agenda.

Increase your understanding of the policy process and how you can influence it.

Seize the opportunity to take your place at the table and understand what makes Congress and the White House tick at the 2015 ASBC Business Summit.


“Don’t miss the Summit! It’s the best forum I know for leaders of sustainable businesses to work together on critical policy issues.”

—Deb Nelson, Executive Director, Social Venture Network.
