Sustainable Workplaces

Urban Green Lab’s Workplaces Division builds a community and culture of sustainable workplace behaviors in businesses large and small throughout Nashville by creating opportunities to exchange best practices and connect to local resources.  In addition to training mid-level business professionals how to create sustainable workplace education systems, Urban Green Lab brings companies together through the Corporate Sustainability Roundtable, the new Nonprofit Sustainability Roundtable, and Workforce Discoveries (for high school students).

Urban Green Lab recognizes and trains companies how to grow sustainable workplaces cultures. Through both an overall workplace recognition program and staff professional accreditation, Urban Green Lab works together with businesses large and small to discover sustainable workplace solutions that prevent waste through their own offices, cubicles, eateries, and vendors, save money, recruit and retain talent, rethink and influence product design, hold vendors accountable, and build a reputation in an increasingly equitable, socially-responsible, and resource-conscious marketplace.
