Corporate Sustainability Roundtable
The Corporate Sustainability Roundtable is Nashville’s corporate community of best practice for exploring strategies to create sustainable workplaces in companies large and small. Founded in partnership with Nissan North America, Piedmont Natural Gas, and the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, and led by Urban Green Lab, the Roundtable unites green team representatives from some 35 local companies, with bi-monthly meetings at rotating companies to explore sustainable workplace education challenges and opportunities, and interact with sustainability experts and vendors.

Urban Green Lab is pleased to offer the Sustainable Workplace Series of educational workshops for our Roundtable members. The workshops are approximately one hour in duration and can be conducted with 5-40 participants.
