About the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia
The Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia (SBN) is a community of local independent businesses that demonstrates the degree to which businesses can build profitable enterprises while serving community needs, sharing wealth, and protecting the environment. SBN’s mission is to build a just, green, and thriving economy in the Greater Philadelphia region. Since 2001, SBN has been the region’s leading advocacy and membership organization for businesses committed to improving their environmental and social impact as well as their profitability.
SBN offers a variety of programming to our members and the broader local business community
throughout the year:
• We connect members with each other, as well as decision makers, to exchange learnings and
best practices, bond over commonalities, and share ideas for how policies and processes could
better support local businesses to grow and thrive.
• We promote our members within and outside of our network, as well as the strengths of a local
economy and triple bottom line practices.
• We advocate on members’ behalf throughout the year to ensure that small, locally-owned,
and sustainably-minded businesses are fully supported to start, grow, and thrive.
