Green America: Growing the Green Economy for People and the Planet

Green America is leading the way toward a more just and sustainable society. Together we have:

  • Directed over $100 million in purchases to socially and environmentally responsible businesses that are the core of the living economy.
  • Channeled over $500 million in investments to community development financial institutions, including banks, credit unions, and loan funds.
  • Played a leadership role in a campaign to pressure Procter & Gamble, the largest coffee company in the US, to convert 5% percent of their Millstone coffee line to Fair Trade Certified, thereby steering more fair trade revenues to coffee farmers in crisis. 
  • Played a leadership role in persuading CitiGroup to remove predatory lending products from the market through our Community Investing Campaign.
  • Organized the consumer voice that helped pressure 22 of the largest clothing retailers to adopt anti-sweatshop standards.
  • Played a key role in successfully organizing institutional investors to encourage the SEC to require mutual funds to disclose their voting on social and environmental resolutions.
