Partner Profile
Spertus Institute's sustainable practice is inspired by the Jewish tenets of tikkun olam (repair the world) and bal taschit (do not waste). The Institute has been guided by these principles in its decision to successfully pursue Silver LEED certification for our new facility, as well as in its continuing operations. Procuring 100% renewably sourced energy was part of a continuum. We put great stock in the environmentally friendly features of our building including its green roof, comprehensive recycling program, catering based on local and organic sourcing, and computer controlled lighting and all-electric HVAC systems. We are a rental space of choice for many green and forward-thinking organizations seeking a venue concerned with sustainable practice. Powered by 100% renewable energy reflects our commitment to that practice.
