Sustainability is an important value and sustainable industries are a critical sector in Oregon. And green practices also are key to being a great place to work, according to a new survey by Oregon Business Magazine. To honor that, Oregon Business is launching its first annual 100 Best Green Companies project this year.
Based on its widely recognized 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon project, the 100 Best Green Companies were determined by an anonymous employee survey and an independent assessment of the employers’ sustainability practices. This survey then gives companies useful and credible information to help guide their workplace practices.
The 100 Best Green Companies will be announced in the June “Green Issue” of Oregon Business and at the Gerding Theater in Portland on June 1 at 5:30 p.m. The Gerding is the first National Register-listed building in the country to receive a LEED platinum certification.
