The magazine looks at a number of policy points relevant to sustainable business owners, including access to capital, tax reform, minimum wage, renewable energy and climate change. But this isn’t just for sustainability advocates — it’s important to keep in mind that SBN’s lobbyist, Saleem Chapman, sees sustainable policy as the best path toward economic equality.

It makes sense that Chapman, who told us he’s a firm believer in incremental change, would prefer to take the “longview” of how Trump’s policies might play out.
