Event description

Description

Join sustainable business leaders across New York State for our 5th annual NY Sustainable Business Summit in Albany!

Together we will make the case for a robust economy that works for all New Yorkers. NYSBC's annual summit is your opportunity to network with other values-driven business leaders and exchange ideas with state legislators on issues important to you and your business. With so many protections under threat federally, we must safeguard New York State and demonstrate the effectiveness of socially and environmentally responsible policies.

Based on feedback from our members and our ongoing work, we have identified a broad array of bills in the NYS legislature in need of your support. These bills can be grouped into the following 4 issue areas: Healthcare, Toxic Chemicals, Solar Energy, and Fossil Fuels. Learn more about our stance on these issues and related legislation here.

All registered participants will receive a policy overview packet in advance of the Summit.
Contact NYSBC Executive Director Bob Rossi with any questions: bob@NewYorkSBC.org or (607) 592-2222.
