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 ecoregions, 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.
Since 2018, Texan by Nature has hosted leadership roundtables that bring business leaders together in each major Texas city to share their thoughts on conservation and its role in their overall mission. Thoughts, successes, dilemmas, and more are shared around the table. Consistently, we hear 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 and launched in 2019: 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 and we are excited to bring you the 2020 Texan by Nature 20 – a listing of the top companies across 12 industries. We’re excited to partner with businesses across the state to celebrate this work.
To be considered for the official TxN 20 list, companies must:
- Have operations based in Texas;
- Be a for-profit entity;
- Share a demonstrated commitment to conservation & sustainability;
- Showcase tangible efforts and impact in conservation.
TxN 20 featured industry sectors:
2. Architecture, Design, and Development
3. Construction and Manufacturing
5. Financial Services
6. Food, Beverage, and Grocery
