Sustainability

Environment

We actively apply the principles of reduce, reuse and recycle throughout the organization. We do our part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by using local bike-based delivery when possible and strongly support employee use of public transportation, cycling, walking or carpooling to work.

Business

Great companies fill a city with great citizens, and we strive to become one of Portland’s most successful companies. We help sustain the thriving and livable city we love by acting as a source for quality jobs, valuable technology and economic success.

Community

We engage with the wider community in constructive ways by offering paid time off specifically for volunteer events and through our Community Ambassador Program. We seek out local vendors and sustainability-certified businesses to stay in sync with our green philosophy while supporting our green neighbors.

How We Commute
