Alisa Gravitz, the CEO & President of Green America, is a leading expert on how families and businesses can “go green,” saving money and resources. Alisa has helped lead the national agenda to create a socially and environmentally responsible economy for 30 years. She is also a nationally recognized leader in the social investment industry. She authored Green America’s acclaimed Guide to Social Investing, with over a million copies in print, as well as the popular Guide to Community Investing.
For the past 30 years, Alisa Gravitz has led Green America, the national green economy organization. Green America develops marketplace solutions to social and environmental problems with a key focus on tackling climate change, building fair trading systems, stopping corporate abuse and growing the green economy. Green America’s major events and publications include the multi-city Green Festivals, the Green Business Conference, National Green Pages and Real Green.
Now many think that creating wealth and building a better world are fundamentally incompatible. In this call, Alisa debunks the myths around money and mission, and shares her key insights on:
- What it will take to green the mainstream economy, and whether this is even possible
- How Green America Certification works and how it will help you as a green business entrepreneur
- What it takes to launch and grow an event like Green Festivals and what other countries can do to replicate their success
- The direct financial and indirect social benefits of making a commitment to buy nothing new for 1 year
- Different types of socially responsible investing options and the benefits of community development banks
