A global nonprofit, The Nature Conservancy is dedicated to both water and land conservation efforts across the country and throughout the world. By setting up shop at American Tobacco, the organization will have a chance to work in a location that values its eco-friendly efforts.
“Just like in each of our day to day lives, the decisions we make as a company should reflect our mission to conserve and protect our shared environment,” says Katherine Skinner, executive director of The Nature Conservancy’s North Carolina Chapter, in a press release.
Katherine adds that it also provides additional ways for the nonprofit to be more sustainable and to positively influence the local community. The Nature Conservancy plans to show off its green thumb by planting a native plants garden between the Strickland Building and Tyler’s Taproom.
The move, which will be completed by late January, will bring 40 to 50 employees to a 13,000-square-foot space in the Strickland Building.
