REMEMBERING GEORGE FLOYD

One year after the murder of George Floyd, we are reflecting on his legacy and the groundswell of action towards dismantling systemic racism and promoting social justice.

At Urban Green, we’ve taken a number of steps to understand and integrate new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives into all facets of our work. Our 2021 Conference reflects this focus and explores the ways we can approach policy and building design to create the most sustainable, equitable and healthy outcomes for all. 

Internally, we have developed a comprehensive action plan that will educate our team, create inclusive programs and support communities that have been historically marginalized. Find out more here.

Our commitment to racial equity and environmental justice remains strong, and we reiterate unequivocally, Black Lives Matter.
