Best Practice Forum: Branding and Messaging for the Sustainable Business

February 23, 9:00 - 11:00 AM
We Work (Market Street), 1601 Market Street, Philadelphia

The Best Practice Forums are a series of workshops that use member case studies to create meaningful opportunities to learn, connect, and build a better business. In these interactive sessions, presenters share the “behind the scenes” story of their business – including successes, challenges, and failures – and then outline the practices that enabled them to overcome obstacles.

At this program, SBN member Clean Markets will discuss the best practices that have worked for them to promote sustainable businesses successfully. As SBN members dedicated to various sustainability missions, you can state with confidence that your businesses and employees are all committed to environmental, social and societal values. But will your customers believe you?

GSI Precedent Library:
Available Online Now!

One of the ways SBN, via the Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) Partners, is addressing the need for more information on the degree to which GSI performs is through the development of a GSI Precedent Library. The Library was developed in partnership with The Delaware Valley Green Building Council with support from a strong consultant team including Meliora Design, Andropogon Associates, and Roofmeadow. The GSI Precedent Library features a collection of case studies of highly effective GSI projects from across the country that demonstrates the dynamic performance capacity of best management practices. The case studies are complemented by peer-reviewed research that further defends the environmental, social, and economic benefits of green stormwater infrastructure.
