SBN is proud to launch The Good Economy Challenge!

 

Once every four years, the voters of Philadelphia have the opportunity to choose candidates for Mayor and City Council. Now is our chance to persuade the next Mayor and City Council to embrace the challenge of creating a more sustainable local economy. SBN is proud to launch its new campaign, The Good Economy Challenge!

 

HERE ARE OUR ISSUES AND RECOMMENDATIONS, IN BRIEF:

 

  • Improve the climate for small business in Philadelphia. Improve city service portals, simplify the tax process, eliminate unnecessary laws and provisions and connect the small business support system.
  • Prioritize local and sustainable business procurement by city government, universities, & other institutions. Make procurement easier, greener, and local!
     
  • Improve our water ways, green our city, and further the green stormwater infrastructure industry by advancing the City’s Green City, Clean Waters plan.
     
  • Move Philadelphia to 20,000 Solar Homes by 2025. Make property tax abatement policies sustainable, educate consumers on solar, and incentivize solar jobs for youth.
     
  • Strengthen the partnership between the City and Certified B-Corps. Double the Sustainable Business Tax Credit and apply it to profits. Expand the “Jump Start” program for Certified B-Corps.
