An environmental resource for East Tennessee Business

Welcome to

GoGreenET's Green Business Business Recognition Program seeks to highlight Knoxville-area businesses and nonprofit organizations that have made their operations more environmentally friendly.

Applications closed April 1. Achievers will be announced in the May issue of the Greater Knoxville Business Journal

Join us in recognizing these organizations at the GoGreenET Business After Hours event, hosted by the Knoxville Chamber, from 5-7 p.m. May 13 at the Cherokee Farm Innovation Campus. Register at the Knoxville Chamber website.

Business recognition is an online resource created to aid East Tennessee businesses and organizations in making their operations -- whether a factory or office setting -- more sustainable. Nearly 90 East Tennessee companies -- Green Achievers -- have participated in GoGreenET's Green Business Recognition program since its inception two years ago.

Sponsors of the site are the Greater Knoxville Business Journal, KUB, the Knoxville Chamber, Hickory Construction, Oak Ridge Associated Universities and founding partner, Thermocopy.
