As a company that actively uses its knowledge of sustainability in building design, it’s only fitting that BergerABAM pursue the “green” in every day work life. BergerABAM’s Portland, Oregon, office was recently awarded the Gold rating by the City of Portland’s Sustainability at Work program.
The Sustainability at Work program was created to assist businesses, from small start-ups to large corporations, in gaining access to resources aimed at improving their environmental practices. The program offers three levels of certification to recognize positive impact on the environment and community. To qualify for certification, a company must apply for the program and meet a minimum of 12 sustainability actions in five main categories.
