Based on its widely recognized 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon project, the 100 Best Green Companies are determined by an anonymous employee survey and an independent assessment of the employers’ sustainability practices.
For the seventh annual 100 Best Green Companies in 2015, Sustainable Practices questions were incorporated into both the 100 Best Nonprofits survey, conducted April-June 2014 and the 100 Best Companies survey, conducted August-November 2014. More than 17,000 employees from 450 Oregon workplaces took part in these two surveys.
In March, we will notify all company and nonprofit survey participants whether or not they are a 100 Best Green Company. We will celebrate these workplaces at a luncheon event on May 27, 2015 at the Nines Hotel in Portland.
Employee ratings on satisfaction with and importance of sustainable practices for 10 survey statements count for 2/3 of each workplace's overall green score while 15 sustainable practice questions answered by the employer count for the remaining 1/3 out of 300 possible points.
GREEN EMPLOYEE SURVEY QUESTIONS
For each statement below, employees rate:
1. Sustainability as part of the company/organization’s mission
