SustainaBall is the region’s premier event for celebrating the localism movement and impact economy in Greater Philadelphia. Join us at our jovial annual gala and demonstrate your commitment to business as a force for good. All proceeds support SBN’s mission to build a just, green, and thriving economy in the region.

Guests will enjoy local food from Birchtree Catering and local libations while mingling with triple bottom line (people-planet-profit) business owners, thought leaders, activists, decision-makers, and other like-minded colleagues who are committed to growing a vibrant economy that serves community needs and protects the environment.

This year, as part of our program, we will recognize the nearly 200 businesses in the region who took the Best for PHL Challenge in 2017. SBN is proud to be a lead partner in the Best for PHL initiative, which empowers the region’s businesses to improve their triple bottom line through awareness and connection to resources.

SBN Members receive a 20% discount on tickets. Best for PHL participants receive an additional 10% discount on tickets. Best for PHL participants should email Bradford Bucknum at for the discount code.
