TTF recognizes the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia for its leadership in forming the Business United Conservation Industry Partnership to advance local businesses working in green stormwater infrastructure. BUC serves to address barriers to industry growth, uncover workforce needs, highlight business-to-business procurement opportunities, promote industry best practices, and keep local business leaders ahead of changes in the marketplace. The BUC Industry Partnership also provides employee training funds to allow businesses and their employees more growth opportunities and earnings potential. BUC’s Industry Partners represent the design, engineering, contracting and construction, manufacturing and supply, landscaping, and maintenance sectors, as well as the skilled trades.
The mission of the Sustainable Business Network is to build a just, green, and thriving economy in the Greater Philadelphia region by educating and growing a broad base of local, independent businesses and educating policymakers and the public.
