A NATIONAL VOICE FOR GREEN BUSINESS

 

The USGCC advocates for sustainable environmental, social, and financial policies for its members, their communities, and the country.

ADVOCACY

USGCC promotes a regulatory environment conducive to investment in sustainability measures leading to new job creation and the development of efficient, money-saving operation practices.

USGCC provides legislative monitoring, formulates comprehensive policy positions, then presents a balanced and honest account of upcoming legislation of interest to its members, including federal, state and local laws and budget allocations. Past issues of involvement include:

  • California’s Proposition 23, which supported marketing based on GHG emission rights;
  • Single-use plastic bag legislation; and
  • Highway mass transportation initiatives in Southern California.

  • Grants, loans and venture capital opportunities;
  • Current issues and trends within the sector; and
