Michigan's Great Southwest Sustainable Business Forum (MGSSBF) 

MGSSBF's Mission is to be an information source, and force, for merging environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and economic strength.

A sustainable business is one that creates profits for its shareholders while protecting the environment and improving the lives for those with whom it interacts. 

The Triple Bottom Line
is the term that Sustainable Businesses use to measure and stay balanced between three areas:

1.  Environment:  Air Quality, Water Quality, Energy Usage, Waste Produced, etc.
2.  Social:  Labor practices, Community Impacts, Human Rights, Product Responsibility, etc.
3.  Economic:  Sales, Profits, Return on Investment, Cash Flow, Jobs Created, etc.

MGSSBF is a 501(c) 3 organization and happily and gratefully accepts donations in support of our sustainability and education efforts. Contributions may be mailed to MGSSBF, PO Box 513, St. Joseph, MI 49085.

Let us help keep you on top of all the great events, news blasts, MGSSBF newsletters and so much more.
