Through on-the-ground projects, advocacy and education, the Healthy Communities and Sustainable Growth Committee advances and supports place-making, healthy living, community building, multi-modal transportation, sustainable economic growth, and stewardship of the natural environment toward a healthy, resilient and sustainable Arizona. The committee meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month.

Stewarding Arizona's
Environment Since 1969

Arizona Forward was founded as Valley Forward in 1969, one year before the first Earth Day. We expanded statewide in 2013.  

We mobilize business leaders and policymakers to leverage their collective power to influence how we best grow our communities, stimulate our economy and enhance our environment.

Our diverse membership of large corporations and small businesses, along with municipal, county and state agencies, educational institutions, related nonprofits and concerned citizens help ensure: smart growth and development, efficient transportation, improved air quality, responsible water management, energy alternatives and meaningful education.
