  • Environmental Sustainability

    Concern for environmental sustainability is part of the way we do business. We work to be green, and we encourage our employees to do the same at work and at home. First Tennessee Foundation supports various green projects across the state. In Nashville and Chattanooga, we contribute to Land Trust for Tennessee to preserve the unique character of Tennessee's natural and historic landscapes and sites for future generations. Chattanooga also sponsors the Lula Lake Land Trust, Lookout Mountain Conservancy, Tennessee River Gorge Trust and Tennessee Aquarium fund for sustainable waterways. In Memphis, we support Shelby Farms Park Conservancy, Overton Park, Wolf River Conservancy and the Greater Memphis Greenline, which connect all these projects by turning unused railway right-of ways and easements into a recreational park/hiking-biking trail system. Knoxville supports Ijams Nature Center River Rescue and Legacy Parks Foundation works to ensure that our community enjoys exceptional recreational opportunities, natural beauty and open spaces, and that those assets exist for generations to come.
