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 are now being accepted for 2015.

We're looking to tell the stories of companies that have made significant progress in recycling/waste reduction, energy efficiency, renewable energy and community outreach along with other areas we may not have event considered.

Share your organization's achievements and best practices through our online Green Achievers submission form.

Achievers will be announced in the May issue of the Greater Knoxville Business Journal.

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. More than 100 East Tennessee companies -- Green Achievers -- have participated in GoGreenET's Green Business Recognition program since its inception.

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