Green America's mission is to harness economic power - the strength of consumers, investors, businesses, and the marketplace - to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society. Since 1982, Green America's programs and campaigns have used economic strategies to build the green marketplace, stop egregious corporate social and environmental practices, help millions of people green their lives and purchases, and create a green economy.

We organize our national network of consumers, investors, activists, and businesses around four interrelated issue areas: 1) Clean Energy & Climate Action, 2) Regenerative Agriculture, 3) Fair Labor & Social Justice, and Responsible Finance & Better Banking.

Our three strategic hubs include our: 1) Consumer & Corporate Engagement Programs, 2) Green Business Network, and 3) Center for Sustainability Solutions.

Green America is also the nation's trusted source for green living and buying resources.
