Sustainable Business Alliance + Oakland Grown

The Sustainable Business Alliance (SBA) is a business association committed to building a vibrant community of locally-owned, sustainably-minded businesses in the East Bay.

SBA’s vision is for an East Bay network of business, community residents, and government engaged in actions that benefit the local economy, social equity, the environment, and quality of life for current and future generations. We do this through:

 - Educating the public on the benefits of local living economies and encouraging residents and businesses to spend locally.

 - Supporting public policy changes that advance sustainable economic development, through our affiliation with the American Sustainable Business Council.


Oakland Grown is a program of the Sustainable Business Alliance.

Oakland Grown's mission is to build an economy by the people, of the people and for the people of Oakland.

Our Members are a diverse community of over 300 local businesses, social enterprises, artisans, and service providers.
