Texan by Nature brings conservation and business together for the benefit of our people, prosperity, and natural resources. Texas is a special place – the world’s 10th largest economy, leadership in multiple industries, 11 eco regions, 8 mountain ranges, 150+ conservation organizations, the list could go on and on. We believe that our long term prosperity and health is dependent upon our natural resources and that bringing the groups and attributes together that make Texas unique is an opportunity to drive a new model of conservation for the world.
Last year we started a leadership roundtable series that brought together business leaders in each major Texas city to share their thoughts on conservation and its role in their overall mission. Thoughts, successes, dilemmas, and more were shared around the table. Consistently we heard that leaders would like to know more about the work being done across Texas, learn the best practices for their industries, and be recognized for their innovation, collaboration, and efforts in conservation.
Based on the feedback and requests from our roundtables and business partners, an idea was born: The Texan by Nature 20. The TxN 20 is an effort to recognize the best work in conservation coming from Texas based businesses. It’s an opportunity to showcase innovation, commitment, and best practices from a variety of industries. We’re excited to partner with Texas Monthly and businesses across the state to celebrate this work and hope you’ll submit additional data so that the very best is highlighted in the 2019 TxN 20.
To be considered for the official TxN 20 list, companies must:
- Have operations based in Texas;
- Share a demonstrated commitment to conservation & sustainability;
- Showcase tangible efforts and impact in conservation.
TxN 20 featured industry sectors:
- Financial Services
- Hospitality & Entertainment
About Texan by Nature
Texan by Nature brings business and conservation together to protect what we love most about the Lone Star State.
In Texas, our natural resources are finite, but our ingenuity is infinite. At Texan by Nature, we harness that can-do spirit to take care of the land, water and wildlife that sustain our state’s people and prosperity. We do this by activating new investments in Texan-led conservation, amplifying and accelerating innovations, and connecting partners to the resources they need to succeed.
As part of our mission to amplify and accelerate efforts in innovative conservation, we have partnered with Texas Monthly to launch the TxN 20, a ranking of the top 20 businesses in Texas moving conservation forward for the benefit of our people, prosperity, and natural resources.
“The people and the land are what make Texas great. When they are working in harmony, everyone benefits.”
