Profile:

  • The Alliance for Sustainability was founded in 1983 as the International Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture by leaders and groups from around the world. It brought together a diverse group of farmers, consumers, business leaders, environmentalists, development workers, educators and scientists who shared a common vision: The worldwide realization of sustainability with a focus on sustainable agriculture-- food and agricultural systems that are ecologically sound, economically viable, socially just and humane. Given its successes in sustainable agriculture, the Alliance broadened its mission in 1998 to incorporate all aspects of sustainability and became the Alliance for Sustainability with the International Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture as a project. The mission of the Alliance is to bring about personal, organizational and planetary sustainability through support of projects that are ecologically sound, economically viable, socially just and humane. The Alliance for Sustainability is a Minnesota-based, tax-deductible nonprofit supporting model sustainability projects on the local, national and international levels. The Alliance accomplishes its work by bringing together diverse businesses, government agencies, academic institutions, religious organizations, nonprofits, community groups and individuals in support of sustainability. It has helped promote sustainability education and training through The Natural Step and has developed partnerships and projects with a wide range of groups. The Alliance has numerous publications and a comprehensive Sustainability Resource Center that is open to the public.
