In 2014, when we purchased our building in Detroit’s Islandview neighborhood, we were already thinking about long-term sustainability. DBG took the right steps to make a meaningful impact on our community and serve future generations.

Our Sustainability Story

Our building was originally a book-binding factory that was built in 1941

A Green Environment For All

Our students are at the heart of every decision we make and providing them with a comfortable, safe learning environment is our number one concern. Making our building more energy efficient and eco-friendly means less funding spent on utility bills, and more invested in our programming and students. Our green initiatives benefit our community, too. Help us continue to make a green impact for the future of DBG and our community.

DBG is honored to receive an Earth Day Celebration Business Award from the Detroit City Council Green Taskforce for our significant contributions to help Detroit become a greener, healthier city.

We are well on our way to becoming sustainable for future generations, but we still have more work to do. Join our efforts to become a lean, green fighting machine. Support our students and our environment today.
