greenUP! is the fiscal sponsor for the Green Business Engagement National Network (GBENN).

GBENN is a consortium of unique local, state-wide and national green business programs from across the United States. Their mission is 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.

Towards the end of 2015, the GBENN leadership team embarked on a journey to formalize the organization’s structure and build a strategic path to grow the reach and impact of the Network. To help address some of these development needs, as well as continue to provide opportunities for relationship development and sharing best practice information, the leadership team committed to hosting a second National Summit on Green Business Engagement Programs. The second National Green Business Summit was held on October 19-20th at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, MO. GBENN also decided to adopt greenUP! as its fiscal partner to help strengthen the organization as they emerge and grow.
