The Green Business Engagement National Network (GBENN) was formed out of discussions that occurred the first National Summit on Green Business Engagement Programs, which drew over forty leaders from across the United States to Boston on May 9 and 10, 2013. This Summit provided a forum for leaders to share achievements, discuss challenges, and exchange best practices for engaging the business community, partnering with local governments, collaborating with utility districts, and delivering program services. The summit was highly successful in identifying the critical factors for green business programs to support economically vibrant and sustainable cities, as well as identify a common interest in providing further opportunities to connect and collaborate.
greenUP! supported the GBENN Summit in 2016 and 2018. The next Summit will take place in 2020 in Colorado. A venue and date have yet to be determined.
