BECOME A PROTECTOR OF THE GREAT LAKES REGION

We Know You're Busy

Businesses can make a difference for the environment but owners don't always have the time or resources to advance needed change

We Can Help

Join over 170 businesses that trust the Great Lakes Business Network to help amplify their voice with elected leaders and the media to advance solutions to the environmental issues facing our region

Many entrepreneurs are frustrated their businesses are misrepresented as caring more about profit than protecting the environment, so we formed a network of owners who believe companies should be part of the solution and arm them with resources to become leading protectors of the Great Lakes region and economy.

OUR FOCUS ISSUES

Harmful Algal Blooms

 Working together, we can generate momentum towards a clean Lake Erie

Straits of Mackinac Pipeline

 Removing the 67-year-old Line 5 pipeline from the Great Lakes because it poses an immediate threat to our businesses, economy, and way of life

Clean Energy

 Creating a clean energy economy in the Great Lakes region offers long-term benefits

We also keep our members aware of and engaged in emerging and urgent issues that impact the Great Lakes and the communities that depend on them to thrive
