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 sixth annual 100 Best Green Companies in 2014, Sustainable Practices questions were incorporated into both the 100 Best Nonprofits survey, conducted April-June 2013 and the 100 Best Companies survey, conducted August-November 2013. More than 16,000 employees from 407 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 28, 2014 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
GREEN EMPLOYER SURVEY QUESTIONS
Please indicate to what degree your company/organization’s Oregon sites support and promote the following sustainable practices: (No, not at this time / Under consideration / In process / partially done / Yes, fully implemented)
1. Comprehensive sustainability policy with statement of clear goals
HOW TO APPLY
Sustainability is an important value and sustainable industries are acritical sector in Oregon. And green practices also are key to being a great place to work. To honor that, Oregon Business launched its first annual 100 Best Green Companies project in 200 and developed survey questions in partnership with The Natural Step USA.
