    Return to Environmental Commitment

    Examples of processes that have been adapted at NEB: 

    • The NEB food service purchases local produce whenever possible. Composting in the NEB cafe diverts as much as 75% of the cafe waste away from landfills
    • The janitorial staff uses environmentally friendly cleaning reagents 
    • In the warm-weather months, employees can take advantage of a farm stand brought to the NEB campus, offering organically grown produce
    • Employees are able to purchase reusable market bags produced from recycled plastic 
    • NEB has partnered with MassRIDES to help employees search for alternative ways to get to work 
    • Premier parking for employees who carpool, as well as safe storage for bicycles are available
    • Employees can also take advantage of a “community service day”, which allows them the opportunity to volunteer for the organization of their choice without having to use personal time 
    • Outside speakers are often invited to educate employees on conservation methods
