After significant planning work by our internal sustainability team, Cascade Energy submitted an application for the City of Portland’s Sustainability at Work (insert hyperlink to: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/sustainabilityatwork/) program, followed by a verification visit with a City representative at the end of October. We are happy to announce we earned a Gold-level certification, which is the highest level of recognition awarded.
A number of ideas on the City’s application form helped enhance our existing sustainability program, including:
- Along with access to a bike storage room, air pump, and fantastic repair bench, we now provide a spare bike lock at our reception desk for employees and visitors.
- We have fully committed to purchasing only green-certified cleaning products.
We are honored to be recognized by the City of Portland for the outstanding efforts of our sustainability team and employees to have a positive impact on the environment!
