Community cleanups, renewable energy, and public transportation benefits are just a few examples of our commitment to the environment. This year, Vernier ranked 8th on the list of the 100 Best Green Workplaces in Oregon, and we received recognition for having been on the list for the past 10 years.
At Vernier, we focus on sourcing from local venders, generating our own solar power, and providing our employees with annual TriMet passes to encourage the use of public transpiration. Our building is also LEED Gold certified. Vernier employees participate in multiple commuter challenges, such as the Bike More Challenge, that encourages participants to ride their bikes to work. Our two on-site, certified Master Recyclers work with many local recycling organizations to prevent recyclable materials from ending up in landfills, and our Green Team of Vernier employees continues to make improvements to our processes and encourage sustainability throughout the company. We are also founding members of the Oregon Business Alliance for Climate and have signed the We Are Still In pledge.
The awards were announced in the June 2018 edition of Oregon Business Magazine. For more information about the sustainable practices that we implement every day, visit our environment page.
