Green Era

Latham & Watkins has provided pro bono support to Green Era as it seeks to transform a nine-acre vacant brownfield site in Chicago into a renewable energy and urban farming campus — creating green energy and jobs, providing fresh produce, offering small business incubation and educational programming on its campus, and bringing community green space to the area. This project uses a unique, closed-loop approach to drive economic development and sustainability initiatives, including tackling the problems of food waste.
