Join GreenSpaces, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee and UT-Chattanooga in sharing how you conserve, LEED* the way and keep our city and county natural treasures pristine for the next generation.

It's easy. Recently, the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce and green|spaces launched a regional sustainability site highlighting best practices in our region, where you can tell your company's sustainability stories.

“The new sustainability website provides a snapshot of sustainability projects in the area and credits local organizations striving to preserve resources,” says Amanda Ellis, Communications Coordinator with the Chattanooga Chamber.

Chattanooga area sustainability experts and Chamber staff collaborated with Chattanooga city and Hamilton County representatives for three months to develop the site, which presents success stories as well as best practices for making sustainable business decisions.

“We designed the site with collaboration in mind,” says Dawn Hjelseth, Director of Development for green|spaces.

“The new site provides a framework and a starting point for news, events and case studies. We invite businesses and not-for-profits to share success stories through images and practical advice on how sustainability helps us create and maintain a high quality of life for our region.”

The site details our area's sustainable projects and eco-tourism, as well as sustainability related news and events. Also featured is a detailed timeline charting Chattanooga's progress from 1969 to present day.
