Sustainable Business Practices
NEW's (Nonprofit Enterprise at Work) mission is to help nonprofits succeed by strengthening nonprofit management and offering solutions to issues facing our nonprofit community. The NEW Center is a unique multi-tenant facility in Ann Arbor that houses 18 nonprofit organizations. It provides central recycling locations on each floor for glass, plastic, cans and cardboard. In addition to these efforts, computers, fluorescent lights, batteries, yard waste, and ink cartridges are recycled regularly. As another waste reduction effort, NEW uses postcards to advertise trainings, conference rooms, office space rental and the posting of its annual reports on its website. The Center has also reduced paper consumption through the increased use of email and electronic documents. Many companies and individuals contact the NEW Center to offer furniture, office equipment and supplies to nonprofit agencies at no charge. The NEW Center encourages its tenants to share excess equipment and supplies amongst themselves and bring leftover items to Recycle Ann Arbor for re-use.
