Green America is a not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1982 that went by the name “Co-op America” until January 1, 2009. Our mission is to harness economic power—the strength of consumers, investors, businesses, and the marketplace—to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society.
At Green America:
- We mobilize people in their economic roles—as consumers, investors, workers, and business leaders.
- We focus on economic strategies—economic action to solve social and environmental problems.
- We empower people to take personal and collective action.
- We work on issues of social justice and environmental responsibility. We see issues of social justice and environmental responsibility as completely linked in the quest for a sustainable world. It’s what we mean when we say “green.”
- We work to stop abusive practices and to create healthy, just and sustainable practices.
Overall, we work for a world where all people have enough, where all communities are healthy and safe, and where the bounty of the Earth is preserved for all the generations to come.
