The Sanctuary Recognized by Urban Green Lab

Urban Green Lab, a Nashville sustainability nonprofit, has recognized The Elephant Sanctuary with a Silver Certification for our commitment to the practice of sustainable behaviors and decision-making that better protect our people, profit, and planet.

Since 2019, The Sanctuary's Green Team has been working with Urban Green Lab to establish goals for the organization — from transitioning to paper-free task lists to working with vendors to reduce single-use plastics in product shipments, and more. Last month, our Team joined collaborative partner Bongo Java at the Nashville Sustainability Roundtable hosted by Urban Green Lab to present and discuss how organizations can form strategic, sustainable partnerships.

The Sanctuary advocates for the planet that we share with the elephants entrusted to our care through decisions, processes, and purchasing and works to foster a culture of sustainability in the workplace.
