- Equity and anti-oppression are embedded in all we do
- Critical growth industries—the regional food system, renewable energy and energy efficiency, and green stormwater infrastructure industries—thrive in the region, creating opportunities for diverse small businesses and workers, providing family-supporting wages, enhancing equitable community development, and advancing climate resilience
- The policies and budget priorities of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and City of Philadelphia support an economic ecosystem that centers localism, protects our environment, and ensures prosperity for all
- SBN continues to be recognized as the region’s thought and practice leader on local independent business issues, triple bottom line business practices, and an equitable, inclusive, and climate resilient economy
- The region’s diverse independent businesses are doing well by doing good
- SBN has the infrastructure, and human and financial assets necessary to achieve our goals
Our ideal candidates are business owners or executives with a track record of practicing – and measuring success by – the triple bottom line of people, planet, and profitability.
