We envision a future in which strong communities, regenerative economies, and a resilient environment are the foundation of the Sierra Nevada region. Through our work in Economic Empowerment, Regional Advocacy, and Climate Action, we work to make that vision a reality.
We work with small businesses, local governments, and community nonprofits to build the foundation for a vibrant local economy because dynamic communities are one of the region’s most important resources.
We advocate for the Sierra’s social, environmental, and economic interests,. We work to elevate the issues that most impact our communities while ensuring the region’s value is recognized in legislative outcomes.
Sierra Business Council’s Climate Action Team assists communities throughout the Sierra to proactively plan for climate change by reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapting to changes already impacting the Sierra.
we’d be poor advocates of the region if we failed to acknowledge the history and current role of the original stewards of the Sierra Nevada. From the Maidu to the Miwok, the Niesenan to the Shoshone, the Paiute to the Washoe, and all the other diverse cultures throughout the region, the Indigenous peoples of Sierra Nevada were the original caretakers of this landscape, and they are critical partners that should be respected and involved in this region’s future.
