Through Efficient Chicago, Illinois Green staff and volunteers have partnered with local organizations to meet their sustainable operations goals. Learn more about how we’ve supported nonprofit organizations, affordable housing properties, and public facilities over the past few years.


Nonprofit Organizations

Nonprofit organizations often provide critical services to their local community.

Community Buildings

Public sector and other community buildings often manage sustainability initiatives through a number of different groups – a facilities manager, administrators, and occupants all play a role.
