The 100 Best Green Companies project is unique. It recognizes those companies that approach their daily work with green values and the winners were not picked by the magazine or an outside group. They were selected by nearly 19,000 employees from the 415 companies and nonprofits that took part in two anonymous surveys that were part of this year’s 100 Best Companies and 100 Best Nonprofits projects. The 100 Best Companies project is our 18-year-old widely recognized leader in identifying and celebrating excellence in workplace practices in Oregon. Our 100 Best Green Companies project was launched three years ago.
In the green survey, workers ranked their satisfaction with their company’s green practices. Who better to judge whether a business is delivering on its sustainable goals than the people who live them?
These everyday workplace practices count. The planet is just a little bit better for every paperless office, every mass transit pass, every solar panel on the roof and every cup of organic office coffee.
Our best green companies are from every sector in the state: landscapers, hotels, builders, wineries, software makers and nonprofits. It doesn’t matter what an organization does, but it greatly matters how it does it. And increasingly, doing business in Oregon means doing it green.
When so much of the discussion is about what’s going wrong in the economy today, the 100 Best Green Companies to Work for in Oregon prove that much is also going right.
