Sustainability Projects

Since 2013, GreenLight has partnered over 300 students with more than 45 businesses to implement sustainable business solutions. Collectively, our team has donated more than 31,000 volunteer hours to local businesses.

The impact these projects continue to create in the community is inspiring. Dozens of businesses have evolved their operations to adopt sustainable practices, and hundreds of student Solutioneers learned how to create positive change and make a measurable difference.

These diverse projects have spanned the areas of greening supply chains, zero waste events, energy efficiency, community development, circular economy, urban housing, local food systems, and so much more. To engage in a Student-Led Project for your business, learn more about the Project Partner experience here.

Testimonials

What are our Project Partners saying about GreenLight?

“GreenLight Solutions was a pleasure to work with! Thank you GreenLight Solutions for helping our organization understand the impacts of climate change on our infrastructure.”

“GreenLight Solutions helped to make a significant impact in how we manage our resource yard and communicate our sustainability goals to event attendees. The students were hard-working and insightful, often helping us uncover us new ways to be eco-conscious!”
Rob Jameson, CTO/CMO, Arcosanti

“GreenLight Solutions puts forth a genuine effort to learn and collaborate on growing people and their environment. GreenLight is resilient, unyielding, persistent, determined and strong.”

“It’s great to have a dedicated group of people looking at a sustainability challenge that we don’t have the resources or capacity to pursue. GreenLight is a great organization that helps small business and organizations solve sustainability challenges while fostering a collaborative approach to real world solutions! I fully support the mission and vision of GreenLight Solutions.”

“We partnered with GreenLight Solutions to promote the Phoenix Solar Co-op. They helped us to spread the word about neighbors in Phoenix coming together to go solar as a group. The students quickly learned to present information about solar to the public. They developed and implemented a marketing plan over email, social media and in-person (pre-COVID).”

“Love working with you all. Three words to describe GreenLight Solutions are focused, dynamic, & excited.
“Greenlight Solutions is a great concept that matches real world need with skilled students who are looking to gain real world sustainability “chops.” It’s a win-win — but the biggest winner might be the planet. I don’t see a reason why this simple concept can’t be easily replicated a thousand times at other colleges and universities around the world.”
