The Alabama Coastal Foundation (ACF) is a non-partisan, non-profit organization with a mission to improve and protect Alabama’s coastal environment through cooperation, education, and participation. One of our initiatives is the Green Coast Council (GCC), a forum for business and industry leaders who practice and promote environmental sustainability principles. Each year, the GCC convenes a Sustainability Summit to encourage people in the private, public, and social sectors to understand the economic and environmental benefits of using sustainable and resilient business practices.


Presentations at the 2021 Summit support the theme “Creating Resilient Communities: Intersections of Ecology, Equity, and Human Health.” The Summit will take place in real-time using ACF's secure virtual meeting system and will have two keynote speakers and five one-hour sessions which include time for questions. All presentations should include 1-3 actionable items that attendees can implement at their business, organization, or home.

Since 1993, the Alabama Coastal Foundation (ACF) has worked to promote a culture where environmental decisions are based on an accurate understanding of the underlying science, the dissemination of factual information, and the engagement of government, industry and citizens to find solutions to Alabama's coastal environmental challenges. We bring that vision into reality through our inclusive environmental stewardship approach.

ACF makes it easy for you to connect to your coast! Keep up to date on events and opportunities to improve and protect Alabama's precious coastal environment.
