VBSR Welcomes Jordan Giaconia as Public Policy Manager

Burlington, VT – Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility is pleased to announce that Jordan Giaconia will be returning to the organization as Public Policy Manager. In this role, Giaconia will support VBSR’s efforts to advance the organization’s policy goals, working closely with VBSR members.

Jordan Giaconia brings several years of experience shaping policy at the local, state, and national levels, including Campaign Representative with Sierra Club and Public Policy Manager for VBSR. Giaconia will return to the organization in early August.

Vermont’s socially responsible business community is a truly impactful one. It’s an honor to once again represent VBSR in the Vermont Statehouse,” said Jordan. “I look forward to creating meaningful opportunities for impassioned industry leaders to bring their voices and innovative ideas to the forefront of change. It’s what VBSR does best and is critically needed in our shared work to forge a more green, equitable, and prosperous Vermont.”

VBSR has been advocating on behalf of the people, environments, and businesses of Vermont for nearly 31 years and has been a leader on legislative successes such as farm to plate and home solar investment, the global warming solutions act, marriage equality, ban the box, clean water investment, earned paid sick leave, increasing the minimum wage, climate action, and more.

Over VBSR’s history, we have proven that business can collectively bring their voices to support policies that sustain our communities, our employees, and our planet. While voluntary changes inside our businesses are key to creating more equitable, sustainable, and prosperous communities, only public policy can deliver the pace and scale of change needed to tackle our most pressing societal challenges,” said Sascha Mayer, Chair of the Public Policy Committee and CEO and Co-Founder of Mamava. “Jordan has the knowledge, skills and expertise to move these important policies forward on behalf of our members. We are thrilled to welcome him back.”
