The Iowa Sustainable Business Alliance (isballiance.org)
extends an invitation to you to attend a very special talk:
Who: Jeffrey Hollender (Founder of Seventh Generation Natural Products, Chairman of the Board of Greenpeace USA)
When: Saturday, June 22, at 10 am
What: A speech entitled ‘Responsibility Revolution”
Where: The Arts & Convention Center, Fairfield, Iowa
Who is Jeffrey Hollender and why is this talk important?
Jeffrey Hollender is a leading authority on corporate responsibility, sustainability and social equity. More than twenty years ago, he co-founded Seventh Generation and went on to build the fledgling company into a leading natural product brand known for its authenticity, transparency, and progressive business practices. It is now one of the country’s largest and most successful green products companies. Today, as a social entrepreneur, author, speaker, consultant, and activist, Jeffrey’s mission is to inspire and provoke business leaders to think differently about the role they and their companies play in society. Along the way, he’s working to drive systemic change that makes it easier for businesses to become radically more sustainable, transparent and responsible.
Jeffrey also co-founded the American Sustainable Business Council (www.asbcouncil.org), which includes over 200,000 businesses. Last June, ABSC and the White House gathered a group of big names and small business owners together, upholding the promise to give its members’ access to the government and policy makers to voice real concerns. Troy Van Beek and Laura and Paul Tarnoff, from Fairfield attended. They had the chance to pick the brains of 7 cabinet members and over 30 key policy makers. This was the inspiration for gathering our team to create ISBA.
Jeffrey’s talk inaugurates the official debut of The Iowa Sustainable Business Alliance(ISBA). ISBA is a member organization of Iowa businesses, organizations, social enterprises, and individuals advocating for a prosperous, accountable, and just Iowa economy. ISBA unites Iowans and businesses committed to developing sustainable solutions capable of supporting the needs of today and future generations. Through representation, advocacy, and community ISBA becomes a catalyst for change. ISBA will inform and engage the public, policy makers, and the media, highlighting the necessity, opportunity, and benefits of building a more sustainable economy. ISBA hopes to work with and support all of Iowa’s environmental groups through education of businesses and individuals and through legislation and lobbying.
