Vibrant Greenspace at Work
The diverse environmental, economic and social benefits of Cleveland’s green space underpin the sustainable development of the city. The expansion of parks and natural areas, community gardens, urban farms, green roofs, landscaped boulevards, bike paths, trails, schoolyards, recreational areas, and other public open green space in Cleveland can help to establish a broad swath of green space and build on the city’s surrounding Emerald Necklace. There is a lot that workplaces can do on their property to contribute to the City’s greenspaces. You can share your success story here!
- Ensure green space is at or near your facility for employees and visitors to enjoy.
- Plant trees on your property where possible. Check out the Cleveland Tree Plan for a tree planting species list.
- Engage your employees in community efforts such as park clean-ups, Arbor Day events and other ways to preserve and improve our greenspaces.
