Sustainability

The Green Garage is a deep exploration of sustainability in a community setting in Detroit. We care about our relationship with the Earth and take our responsibility to reduce our environmental footprint seriously. Our triple bottom line approach takes into account the environmental and social impact of our work as much as our business’s profitability. As a result, we operate at about 10% the waste, water, and energy of a traditional office building.

Sustainable thinking has touched every aspect of the Green Garage, from the original concept to the building’s renovation to our ongoing daily operations. For a closer look at our building’s deconstruction and reconstruction, visit our Sustainable Renovations page.
