Environmental Sustainability

Environmental Sustainability

Lake Street Council works with our local business and nonprofit community to save money and have a positive impact on the environment through programs and partnerships that reduce energy and waste. Although we are not an environmental organization, we believe that addressing climate change requires everybody at the table.

We offer: 

  • Free energy assessments. In partnership with Minnesota Energy Smart, we provide energy assessments that help your business and/or property replace old lighting with LED technology and/or older equipment, such as coolers and HVAC systems with newer, more efficient models. We then work with your business to implement the recommendations according to your interests and specific needs.
  • Recycling and composting assistance.  In partnership with Hennepin County, we assist businesses with making improvements to their waste management systems, including introducing and/or improving their recycling and composting. 

For more information or to get assistance with these environmental sustainability efforts at your business, contact Matthew Kazinka at 612.823.0096 or mkazinka@lakestreetcouncil.org
