Sustainable Business Alliance
The Sustainable Business Alliance is a membership organization for companies committed to greater environmental and socially responsible business practices. Our members are a diverse community of over 100 sustainable businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area. We strengthen our businesses through networking, education, and partnership opportunities. We learn from and support each other through strong community and collaboration.
Our mission is to promote sustainable business practices, nurture the environmentally-committed business sector, advocate the environmentally progressive policies, and improve the environmental profile of economic activity in the East Bay.

Speaker Event - The Green Economic Revolution
Join us this Tuesday for a presentation by Bill Roth:
SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS ALLIANCE
THE GREEN ECONOMIC REVOLUTION
Learn How This Mega-Trend Can Transform Your Life & Work
Bill Roth is the Green Business Coach for Entrepreneur.com with a regular column. He is also President of NCCT, an East Bay firm that has participated in the development of the first hydrogen fueled Prius and in-grid, non-thermal solar peak power plants. As a professional economist Bill published in 2008 his critically acclaimed book, On Empty (out of time) that provides compelling documentation and layman language economic explanations on what Bill has labeled the Green Economic Revolution.
Bill will outline at our February 10 meeting his statistical analysis and business case studies that document how Sustainability has now merged with Globalization and the Information Age to create a transformational mega-trend that will impact how we live, redefine our core business systems and provide the basis for renewed economic growth. And most encouragingly, Bill holds an optimistic perspective that the American consumer will be the enabling force that drives the adoption of solutions to unsustainable energy pricing, Energy Independence and Global Warming. Don't miss his insights on how we in the Bay Area have a unique opportunity to capitalize upon what Bill estimates will be a $4 billion U.S. annual revenue market by 2020.
