20 Texas Firms Recognized in the TxN 20 for Leadership in Conservation & Sustainability

The Beck Group was named a 2021 Texan by Nature (TxN) 20 honoree. TxN is a Texas-led conservation non-profit founded by former First Lady Laura Bush. The nonprofit announced the honorees of its 3rd annual Texan by Nature 20 today. The list features companies with Texas operations that have made a demonstrative commitment to conservation.

“We are honored that TxN 20 is recognizing The Beck Group’s sustainability efforts. While the recognition celebrates our achievements, which began over a decade ago, it reminds us why we strive to do better with every new project. We’re proud to share our values with you and pleased that our concern, empathy, and compassion for others and the environment resonates with you,” said Natalie Terrill, Beck’s Director of Sustainability.

The TxN 20 recognizes the best and most innovative work in conservation coming from business based and operating in Texas. As part of the TxN 20, Texan by Nature honors companies across 12 industries in the Lone Star State whose ingenuity cultivates impactful programs and forges new, beneficial paths in conservation.

Commitment in the Conservation Space

“It takes commitment, collaboration, and focus on continual improvement to achieve leadership in conservation,” said Joni Carswell, CEO & President of Texan by Nature. “It is an honor to showcase and celebrate these values in Texas-based businesses that pair our abundance of natural and business resources in their conservation efforts.”

A catalyst for thought leadership, innovative partnerships, and community-led solutions, Texan by Nature has been working with the Texas business community to implement Texas-led conservation practices. The TxN 20 provides not only recognition to honorees but a catalog of best practices and metrics to industry peers. The honoree’s commitment to conservation, their projects and programs, best practices, and lessons learned are examples and inspiration for us all.

To select the 2021 TxN 20, company data submissions were evaluated, and independent research across 2,000+ of Texas’ publicly traded and private companies was conducted for 12 industry sectors.
