Lantana Retreat 2018

greenLantana Logo

Lantana is working to improve the long-term environmental health and well-being of our staff, the companies we work with, the communities we live in, and the planet we share. We are committed to sustainable business practices through our greenLantana initiative, announced in October 2015. The initiative is our collective effort to measure, evaluate, and reduce our environmental footprint while we improve the social impact of our Lantana way of doing business. It emphasizes environmental responsibility, corporate social responsibility, and the triple bottom line—known as people, planet, and profit.

Through greenLantana, we help our staff members reduce their environmental impact and consider how to reduce the environmental impact of our own IT systems and practices and those of our clients.

In 2021, Lantana became a partner with My Green Doctor. We will collaborate on blogs, articles, and resources, and we’ll spread the word about what each organization has to offer.

As the project develops, we will continue to learn from other companies and organizations and to share our experience seeking out those, like us, who work outside a single brick and mortar office and those who are involved in health IT.

Another tree? We have more?” Among Marte’s many…

The Journey Past the Mailbox (AKA Happy Earth Day 2020)

By April Compingbutra | April 22, 2020

The world is different. Maybe your feelings are a grab bag of spiraling anxiety, anger, fear, relief, loneliness, and grief, and your usual coping skills aren’t available right now. After a particularly rough shelter-in-place week, a friend recommended I get a walk in (past the mailbox) for a good twenty minutes and take a good,…

greenLantana: Reducing the Web’s Carbon Footprint

By April Compingbutra | February 21, 2020

In 2019, greenLantana made a big decision—to offset the environmental impact of our web presence. Lantana employees want to better their community and environment. We avoided the environmental impact of the brick and mortar office and work commute by becoming a distributed company, and we have a drive to further reduce our environmental impact. We…
