Building Resilient Economies in Coastal Washington

The Coast Works Alliance is dedicated to making positive changes to the economic systems in Coastal Washington collaboratively, experimentally, and systemically.

COMMUNITY | BUSINESS | ENVIRONMENT

“Coast Works is a great way for The Nature Conservancy to invest in communities for lasting conservation. It looks to support and inspire entrepreneurs and triple bottom line businesses along the Washington Coast –  businesses with the three complementary goals of Profit, People, and Place.”

Garrett Dalan

Washington Coast Community Relations Manager, The Nature Conservancy

Triple Bottom Line

Our focus at CoastWorks is to grow sustainable economic development through triple bottom line business practices that support multiple forms of wealth in communities.

Triple bottom line means that the economic models are successful and supports local economies and jobs, while incorporating the ecological, community, and cultural impacts into the design.

WHO WE ARE

Washington Coast Works is an emerging group from along the Washington Coast that shares a vision of resilient communities based on a triple bottom line economy and sustainable natural resources.

Participating in this program was a unique experience where I was able to really develop a solid vision and plan for my business, backed on real research and essential coaching. Plus, we made many great connections with other local business owners who we continue to keep up with.
