Sustainable America is an environmental 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission to make the nation’s food and fuel systems more efficient and resilient. Through broad public education, hands-on technical assistance, and strategic investment in emerging entrepreneurs and technologies, we work to reduce oil usage and increase food availability in the United States.
Sustainable America was founded by Nick Tiller in 2012. During his career as a hedge fund portfolio manager in the energy and agriculture sectors, Nick became increasingly concerned about the vulnerable state of our food and fuel systems. Nick founded Sustainable America to focus national attention on these intertwined issues.
What We Believe
We believe that attainable behavioral changes, like turning off our engines instead of idling, buying hybrid cars, supporting local food sources, and reducing food waste are critical to building sustainable fuel and food systems. We also believe in the power of entrepreneurs and markets to effect positive change.
