Research Project, Business United for Conservation (BUC)

Posted on April 05, 2010

The Sustainable Business Network is excited to announce that we are seeking a research consultant to conduct a thorough needs analysis for a new Industry Partnership, Business United for Conservation (BUC).

SBN recently received funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry to create an Industry Partnership to support local companies that provide conservation and pollution mitigation services. BUC will identify barriers to industry growth, workforce needs, business-to- business procurement opportunities, industry best practices, and future technology for companies that provide stormwater infrastructure installation services. The need for an Industry Partnership of this kind was one of the key findings of the recently released fourth chapter of the Emerging Industries Project Report, “Gray to Green: Jumpstarting Private Investment in Green Stormwater Infrastructure.”

The Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia is a membership organization building a just and sustainable economy in the Philadelphia region by connecting, supporting, and promoting locally owned, independent businesses.
