The Sustainability Professionals of Greater Chattanooga started as a breakfast meeting in which a handful of local sustainability experts traded ideas and contact information. These experts served as the point person for green initiatives within their company, nonprofit, or government organization, and were glad to have camaraderie of like-minded professionals. As an increasing number of companies saw the value of investing talented individuals’ time into green goals, the size of the group grew. Collectively, the group decided through voting and multiple input sessions that the informal roundtable could serve as greater purpose as a membership-based “home” for people who make sustainability not only a passion, but also a career.
Come and hear about what this new group is doing to make Chattanooga a more sustainable place in the business world!
