Oregon Business' "Greening Your Workplace" seminar
How do you engage employees in sustainability initiatives? What are the latest trends in energy conservation? Where do you locate the office compost bin? Join Oregon Business for a dynamic two-hour event exploring best practices in sustainable workplaces. We kick off the proceedings with a panel of experts reviewing challenges, strategies and metrics of success involved with going green. Attendees will then break down into small groups, sharing stories, ideas and innovations with likeminded individuals working in a variety of business sectors. Participants will leave energized and inspired, and with new tools to help create healthier and more sustainable work environments.

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.
