There are a growing number of individuals, businesses, and organizations in the Missoula Area that are aware of their relationship to the environment and they are utilizing sustainable business practices. We would like to provide a network of support to these entities in the Missoula area. We want to encourage, educate, and help facilitate all businesses in their transition to sustainable business practices.
Businesses are beginning to realize they can thrive and flourish while protecting and restoring the environment. Every individual, business and organization is a potential ally in our effort. We encourage all businesses to adopt sustainable business practices.
Consumers are also searching for these sustainably minded businesses and businesses are aware of the power of consumer purchasing. By bringing the consumer and these businesses together we are creating a vibrant local economy.
Our Sustainable Business Council strengthens the local economy, increases competitive advantage, offers marketing and employment opportunities, and gives a common voice to Missoula area businesses.
In the Missoula area we value our mountains, people, rivers, communities, wildlife, economy, and open spaces. We recognize that we have a connection to the environment. And our business practices should reflect these values that are inherent where we live. We want to have a vibrant business economy and community that works within the cycles of nature.
We hope our Sustainable Business Council will serve as a role model to inspire other Montana communities to do the same.
