About SBN

We are building a just, green, and thriving local economy right here - together. As 325+ locally-owned businesses, SBN connects, promotes, and advances entrepreneurs who are measuring their success on a triple bottom line of people, planet, profit.

Sustainable business is a mindset not limited by the type of work we do. We are a diverse group of entrepreneurs including retailers, manufacturers, service providers and much more. We are joined by a common perspective, similar challenges, and the dedication to working sustainably for the planet, creating jobs in the community and valuing customers and employees, alike.

Our Vision

We envision a future where businesses are investors in the quality of life for all citizens. We challenge and support the business community to build profitable enterprises that serve community needs, share wealth, and protect the environment.

For the Greater Philadelphia region, we will be an effective resource for dynamic, independent, locally-owned businesses that are committed to improving their environmental and social impacts as well as their profitability. We will be a national leader in the creation and integration of entrepreneurial and sustainable business practices. We will continue to establish new models for business operations that value people, planet and prosperity for all, leading by example.

We embrace the vision of the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies, the international coalition of sustainable business networks: “Within a generation, we envision a global system of human-scale, interconnected local economies that functions in harmony with local ecosystems, meets the basic needs of all people, supports just and democratic societies, and fosters joyful community life.”

Our Mission 

The mission of the Sustainable Business Network is to build a just, green, and thriving economy in the Greater Philadelphia region. We accomplish this by educating and growing a broad base of local, independent businesses and educating policymakers and the public.
