The 100 Best Green Companies rankings were calculated by Oregon Business research editor Brandon Sawyer and research partner Davis, Hibbitts & Midghall based on confidential employee surveys and a report completed by each company. The green questions were asked during the 100 Best Companies survey last fall. It isn’t easy being green, but this year’s inaugural class of the 100 Best Green Companies to Work For in Oregon shows that if you’re committed to sustainable practices, it pays off not only for the environment and the bottom line, but also in being a great place to work.

100 Best Methodology

The 100 Best Green Companies were selected based on sustainable practices sections from the 100 Best survey process, completed by 372 employers last fall. Participation in the 100 Best survey is voluntary and free of charge. Companies had to employ at least 15 Oregon workers at the time of taking the survey.

Employee survey
For the 2009 survey nearly 30,000 Oregon workers rated satisfaction and importance in five statements related to sustainable practices.

Company representatives also answered 10 questions about their company’s sustainable business practices.

Scoring

The employer benefits survey is also scored on a 100-point scale, accounting for the other half of the overall score, and resulting in a total possible score of 200.
