Michigan's Great Southwest Sustainable Business Forum (MGSSBF) 

MGSSBF was founded in 2010 primarily as a vehicle for educating the business community in sustainability matters. Our mission is to be an information source and a force for merging environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and economic strength.  The Forum does this this through quarterly in-depth programs and monthly less formal “lunch and learn” sessions.  We also sponsor a monthly Green Drinks event.  The Forum is led by 12 directors with diverse business backgrounds from businesses across Berrien, Cass and Van Buren counties in the Southwest corner of Michigan.

Over the years we have grown to over 100 members.  Our 12-15 events per year have grown to include topics as diverse as water sustainability, community supported agriculture and green cleaning for commercial buildings.  Our attendees at our events come from a diversity of geographic representation, the mix of interests and the enthusiasm for sustainability efforts.
MGSSBF is a Michigan tax-exempt organization.
