In Tennessee, Tennessee Wildlife Federation, one of the largest and oldest nonprofits dedicated to the conservation of Tennessee’s wildlife and natural resources, recently hosted its 54th Annual Conservation Achievement Awards.
Vonore-based Genera Energy Inc. was the statewide honoree for Conservation by Business. Genera is an agriculturally-focused company that partners with regional farmers to produce agricultural fiber-based compostable products such as foodservice wares, paper towel and tissues, and other packaging materials. Genera’s desire to create sustainable biomass solutions is spurring agricultural innovations that significantly help conservation efforts in Tennessee by encouraging sustainable farming practices that also preserve wildlife habitat and restores land across the state. Genera has partnered with farmers throughout the region, including those in Anderson, Blount, Bradley, Loudon, McMinn, Meigs, Monroe, Polk, Rhea, and Roane Counties. Additionally, the company has worked across the United States with a variety of partners on agriculturally-based biomass and products.
