CLEVELAND, OH – June 20, 2016. This afternoon, Niskanen Center president Jerry Taylor will participate in a forum of national and Cleveland-area business leaders and conservative thinkers to examine the financial benefits that companies are achieving through environmental sustainability practices.

The event, organized by the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC), will highlight how conservative principles and policies can support domestic clean energy and address environmental challenges, while ensuring a dynamic and competitive marketplace. It is free and open to the public. Reservations are required and may be made here.

Richard Eidlin, Vice President of Policy and Campaigns at ASBC said, “As private and public sector initiatives both demonstrate, we can have a more sustainable world without growing government or extensive regulation, while encouraging choice, providing clear pricing signals, and limiting the concentration of power. Through this forum we will explore how conservative thought can enhance sustainable goals and create better public policy.”

Other speakers will include: Alex Bozmoski, republicEN;  Michele Combs, Young Conservatives for Energy Reform; Trammell Crow, Earth Day Texas & Partner, Crow Holdings;  Joe Paterniti, Key Bank;  Mark Pischea, Sterling Corporation & Conservative Energy Network;  Catrina Rorke, R Street Institute; Rob Sisson, ConservAmerica; and Howard Williams, Construction Specialties.

The American Sustainable Business Council advocates for policy change and informs business owners and the public about the need and opportunities for building a vibrant, sustainable economy.

The Niskanen Center is a libertarian 501(c)(3) advocacy organization established in 2014 that works to change public policy through direct engagement in the policymaking process.
