Urban Green Lab’s Workplaces Division builds a community and culture of sustainable workplace behaviors in businesses large and small throughout Nashville.
Are you a professional or a company interested in making sustainable workplace education a recognized part of your business? At Urban Green Lab, we work together with you to create a system and a plan for teaching your workforce the basics of sustainable workplace practice that inspires customers, attracts great talent, and saves you money. No matter your industry or size, we organize, train, and connect teams of staff and directors known as “Sustainable Workplace Professionals” who thread sustainable workplace lessons into the anatomy of your company, and make it a part of your mission, values, and culture.
Our Workplaces Division includes personalized team trainings, access to sustainable workplace curricula and tools, and introduction to community resources that help you better solve your business’s sustainability challenges. The Division hosts the Corporate Sustainability Roundtable for Nashville, uniting professionals from some 40 companies large and small (Nissan, Kroger, Country Music Television, etc.) to exchange best practices, tour member companies, and advocate collectively, as well as Workforce Discoveries which embeds highschool seniors from the MNPS Academies of Nashville program into company teams.
