We engage both the public and private sectors to initiate a dialogue around sustainability initiatives and related issues.
We champion businesses, educational institutions, governmental agencies, and individuals for their contributions to advance sustainable best practices.
Nevada Green Institute's vision is of a community with a shared value of building an efficient, smart, and vibrant community.
Nevada Green Institute (NGI) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote public awareness and discussion about innovative ideas, technologies, and best practices that support a sustainable future. It recognizes the individual as the key to a sustainable future. We believe that public awareness and understanding of sustainability concepts will help the public to perceive their actions and decision-making within the context of the interdependency that exists between the community's well-being, economy, and environment. It enhances the public understanding of the linkage between climate change and adopting sustainability best practices.
