Advancing the local GSI industry, innovation, and a triple bottom line economy
The GSI Partners, a signature initiative of the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia (SBN), is an active network of local businesses in the green stormwater infrastructure industry.
Formed in 2013, this initiative was catalyzed by the City of Philadelphia’s comprehensive nature-based stormwater management plan, Green City, Clean Waters, which set a 25-year vision for environmental, social, and economic benefits for our city and region. SBN supports this triple bottom line plan and is working to ensure its maximum success.
Through our GSI Partners, SBN is increasing public and private investment in GSI, fueling industry innovation, and encouraging contracting with diverse local firms.
GSI Partners is the region’s only business-informed effort focused on advancing green approaches to stormwater management. Members include locally-owned engineering and landscape architecture firms; landscape design, build, and maintenance firms; and material suppliers whose services and products relate to GSI. Many of SBN’s GSI Partners are industry experts on local, regional, and national scales.
