What is GBENN?

The Green Business Engagement National Network (GBENN) is a consortium of unique local, state-wide and national green business programs from across the United States.

As a new and growing sector within the broader sustainability movement, great benefit can be realized when organizations and programs work together, support each other, and regularly convene. The networking, information sharing, and organizational strategizing that can be fostered through a coordinated effort can help strengthen the programs of all involved and support the development of new programs.

Our Mission

To facilitate sharing and relationship-building among green and/or sustainable business engagement programs across the U.S. in order to advance the national interests of such locally-focused approaches and spread effective practices.

In 2013, A Better City in Boston, MA organized the first National Summit on Green Business Engagement Programs in Boston. The summit brought together leaders from green business programs across the United States, and led to the creation of GBENN as an organization.
