No Fracking Way! A Fundraiser for “As You Sow”

Posted on 17. Oct, 2011 by in Business & Policy, Events

As You Sow is tracking the latest local measures against hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) and statewide efforts to stop or prevent the practice. Communities across the nation are lobbying their local and state elected officials with conviction that fracking poses an unacceptable risk to their drinking water, their health and the future of their communities. Join As You Sow in Venice Beach on Tuesday, October 25th  and see a wave of environmental advocacy emerge during a lively discussion on engaging business through shareholder action. Learn how Andy Behar, President of As You Sow, is pressing for change from within the boardrooms of major frackers including Exxon, Chevron, and Ultra Petroleum.

From engaging fracking giants to impacting the implementation of Best Buy’s in-store e-waste recycling program to prompting strong commitment on beverage container recycling from PepisCo, Coca Cola, and Nestle, As You Sow is making a difference in CSR efforts among Fortune 500 companies with resolutions. Behar affirms, “We’re seeing more companies acting proactively.”
