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.
We are the region’s only advocacy and membership organization for businesses committed to improving their environmental and social impact as well as their profitability.
We bring together like-minded business owners to celebrate the localism movement and impact economy at our Annual Members Meeting, Holiday Party, and signature events, SustainaBall and Excellence in GSI Awards Ceremony.
We amplify the impact of a triple bottom line economy (people, planet, profit) by empowering local businesses to ignite systemic change in specific industries and the region’s economy. This is our mission in practice.
We are a diverse group of local independent businesses in the Greater Philadelphia region joined by a common perspective that success is measured on the triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit.

“We have been a member for 12 years. SBN is reaching out to us on so many levels–for policy input, business opportunities, funding suggestions–and every event feels unique and important.”
We share the myriad ways members collaborate with each other to grow their business and overcome obstacles.

“When we attend SBN events, we always find good conversation and worthwhile relationships. Being a member has been beneficial. We connected several years ago with a member who carries our products at their cafe.”
We promote the strengths of a local economy and the triple bottom line by highlighting members’ stories of impact, impetus, and inspiration.

“When I first joined as a new business I found a network of business-owners who thought similarly and wanted to do work with the community and with the world beyond just profit. SBN was the answer I had been looking for.”
