NES offered its support for the inaugural Clean Air 5K in Shelby Park. Proceeds from the event go toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution and promoting renewable energy.
Presented by Climate Nashville, participants were encouraged to “green out” on race day by wearing their favorite green or eco-friendly shirts and bring reusable water bottles to access sustainable water stations for refills at the race.
Climate Nashville is a partnership of faith-based, social justice, environmental and business organizations that is leading the local charge to move our region beyond fossil fuels and toward renewable energy, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollution, and ensure climate justice to ensure a healthy planet for our communities and for future generations.
NES employees were also on hand to share information about TVA renewable energy programs such as Green Power Switch and Generation Partners.
