The Black Sustainability Network is the largest global network of Black/African Sustainability organizations, professionals and enthusiasts. Our network convenes annually for the Black Sustainability Summit, training and workshops throughout the year.
We have built a custom platform for our community of members across the globe. Our platform supports raising awareness of projects rooted in solving environmental challenges in the Black community, gaining greater visibility for qualified contractors, culturally relevant sustainability education, and contract opportunities. Black and Green practitioners and organizations across disciplines now have a single space to exchange knowledge, collaborate and providing support across fields of sustainable development in Africa and her diaspora.
To-date, our member-only network platform hosts our 2,300+ global membership. We want to ensure sustainable development is implemented while applying indigenous experts have a sacred space to connect, collaborate and contribute to projects that will positively impact our communities.
When contract opportunities arise -- we have a match.
When community projects are proposed -- we have an impact fund/sponsors and matching experts to complete the work.
When relevant workshops/conferences/events are upcoming our vetted network is aware and can participate as either host or attendee.
And ALL members contribute to a bi-annual report on the state of Black Sustainability in their respective region of the globe.

Red Black and Green (RBG) Impact Fund
SUPPORT PROJECTS YOU BELIEVE IN
Impact investments, such as yours, are investments made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact. The funds received are either DONATED and then granted equally across the projects we highlight each year, OR upon investor request, distributed specifically to a project in which they desire to support. If funds are specifically earmarked for a project, the ROI is determined by the investor and the recipient before funds are distributed.
WANT TO SUPPORT THE GENERAL CONCEPT OF OUR FUND?
90% OF FUNDS GO TOWARD GENERAL FUND; 10% SAVED FOR FUTURE PROJECTS
KNOW WHICH PROJECT YOU WANT TO SUPPORT?
100% OF FUNDS GO TOWARD EARMARKED PROJECTS
EARMARKED PROJECTS & ROI
ROI can be as simple as an agreement or MOU that outlines how the funds will be used and what the investor expects in return. Once an agreement is reached, a letter confirming the details of the investment and ROI expected are emailed to both parties. Because receipt of funds by Black Sustainability Network does not guarantee an agreement will be reached, all funds are held between 15-30 business days until both parties reach an agreement. If one cannot be reached, supporters/social investors receive 90% of funds back and are charged a 10% administrative fee, not to exceed $200.
