Overview

The Energy Technology and Environmental Business Association (ETEBA) is a non-profit trade association representing approximately 170 small, large and mid-sized companies and affiliate members that provide environmental, technology, energy, engineering, construction and related services to government and commercial clients.

 Our mission is to promote the success of its members by fostering market understanding, identifying business opportunities and advocating for the common interests of its member companies. This mission is divided into five main areas:
1. Advocacy for issues and funding that influence business opportunities and conditions;
2. Representation in providing a unified voice for its member companies;
3. Networking Opportunities to foster interaction among member companies and between member
companies and other organizations;
4. Information Clearinghouse for business issues and opportunities;
5. Marketing services to provide greater exposure to member company capabilities.

Originally formed in 1989 as the Oak Ridge Waste Management Association, ETEBA is a 501(c)(6) national non-profit trade association that has been a strong voice for the business community during the past 30 years.
