Susquehanna Sustainable Business Network (SSBN) is a non-profit network of businesses and social entrepreneurs who have made a commitment to managing business for the triple bottom line: People, Planet, and Profit. We are 100% financed by membership fees of our members; local business people, professionals, investors, and not-for-profit leaders who are committed to building a more socially, environmentally, and financially sustainable economy — a local, living economy. Our individual and business members are listed here.
SSBN activities include meetings, activities, and events that highlight networking, advocacy and education and planning with local business districts in Lancaster and York Counties to help build a local living economy. We also strive to educate the community on the benefits of a local economy, and promote strong inter-member business relationships to help keep our businesses and area economies strong. A committed and connected community buys more local and environmentally healthy products and services, contributing to a strong triple bottom line: healthier people, a protected planet and sustainable profit. SSBN also tries to partner and collaborate with other synergistic organizations like Lancaster Buy Fresh Buy Local, Project Green Lancaster, Millersville University Community Engagement and Civic Research Project, Horn Farm Center, Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture, Cash Mob Lancaster and Cash Mob Mount Joy.
In the recent past SSBN has hosted film screenings, mixers at various member businesses, conferences, and social events and participated in Earth Day Events across the region. If you have questions, please contact our Business Manager Beth Proffitt at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also reach out to our Board Members Amy, Gene, Julie, Stacey, Trex.
