Sustainable Growth Coalition
- Reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
- Transitioning to a clean-energy economy.
- Improving materials flows.
- Protecting resources.

The Sustainable Growth Coalition is uncovering business growth opportunities, driving innovation, and promoting thriving communities and regions.
Over 20 businesses and organizations form the Sustainable Growth Coalition, a business led partnership harnessing their expertise to advance the next frontier of corporate sustainability—the circular economy, where all energy is renewable, waste is eliminated, and natural resources are protected and preserved. Individually, each organization is committed to sustainability, and recognize that together they can have a larger, societal impact on their operations, industries, environment, and community.
A Bit More About Us
Environmental Initiative convenes and provides staff support for the Sustainable Growth Coalition. The Sustainable Growth Coalition meets quarterly and members:
- Co-develop initiatives and projects to solve environmental challenges in business.
- Guest blog for Environmental Initiative.
- Sponsor and lead a Best Practices & Learning Lab series highlighting innovation.
- Develop case studies for the Circularity Toolkit.
- Host the Executive Network.
The case studies in the Circularity Toolkit highlight successful organizations which understand that no problem is isolated, comprehensive solutions mitigate risks, and action builds more resilient economies.
Leading businesses and organizations are capturing value by turning corporate properties and potentially under-valued landscapes into productive, biologically diverse areas.
Sustainable Growth Coalition member C.H. Robinson’s recent efforts include Emissions IQ to help customers track their supply chain's transportation emissions and carbon footprint.
At HealthPartners, the secret sauce for achieving circularity is in senior leadership support, strategic partnerships, accountability, and a strong connection to its mission.
More than ever before companies are driven to make meaningful, positive impacts to address complex environmental and social issues across the globe. Minnesota has a proud leadership history addressing these challenges, but we’ve reached a new tipping point—one that encourages us to bring our talents and expertise together to tackle issues from natural resource scarcity and risk to changing customer preferences.
