Certification to showcase your achievements. Sustainability at Work now offers Bronze, Silver, and Gold levels of certification for Portland businesses and organizations based on their level of achievement.

People. Planet. Profit. Businesses in Portland play an important role in reducing disparities, promoting equitable outcomes, and make our city a place where all communities are prosperous and have real opportunity. We’ve launched a pilot to share best practices for a socially sustainable workplace – and to collect your best thinking on this important subject over the next year.
Take action. In addition to providing free tools and expertise, your Sustainability Advisor can help you build an action plan. Together, you’ll set achievable goals and prioritize actions that will deliver the biggest benefit to your company, employees and community.
