The fifth annual 100 Best Green Companies to Work For in Oregon list showcases exemplary workplaces that inspire and empower workers with a daily and enduring commitment to sustainable practices.
The 100 Best Green Companies were determined by more than 18,000 employees from the 440 companies and nonprofits that took part in two anonymous surveys: the 2013 100 Best Companies and 2012 100 Best Nonprofits projects. As part of the surveys, Oregon workers rated their satisfaction with and the importance of 10 statements related to sustainable practices at their workplaces, such as green mission and goals, recycling and waste reduction, support for public transit, energy and water conservation, and buying local. Then employers were independently scored on 15 questions about their sustainable policies.
The 100 Best project is supervised and conducted by Oregon Business research editor Brandon Sawyer and research partner DHM Research of Portland. Sustainable practices questions were formulated in partnership with The Natural Step USA.

Earlier this month, the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) announced they were going to devalue their currency, the Renminbi. While the amount of the targeted change was to be roughly 2 percent, investors read a lot more into the move.
