CASSE was founded as a U.S.-based nonprofit organization by Brian Czech in 2004 to refute the dangerous rhetoric that “there is no conflict between growing the economy and protecting the environment.” Working with colleagues in several professional scientific societies, Brian crafted a scientifically sound position on economic growth that can be signed by individuals and endorsed by organizations. With our position statement, the work of our dedicated staff and volunteers around the world, and the development of numerous information resources, CASSE has become the leading organization promoting the transition from unsustainable growth to a steady state economy.
