Travel Salem has been named to the list of “100 Best Green Companies to Work for in Oregon” by Oregon Business magazine. The list was announced at an awards luncheon held in June in Portland. Travel Salem was one of seven Salem area businesses recognized this year.
“We are committed to maintaining a ‘green company’ and are thrilled to be included in this list that recognizes Oregon’s most sustainable organizations,” said Angie Morris, CEO of Travel Salem.
Travel Salem’s “Green Team,” a group of employees charged with making the workplace more sustainable, led the way in developing an eco-savvy culture with buy-in to sustainable practices. The organization is certified EarthWISE through Marion County’s business environmental assistance program, incorporating sustainable practices in the business such as recycling, reducing waste and saving energy. Travel Salem’s Visitor Center and administrative office were designed with sustainability in mind, using recycled and earth-friendly materials and natural light, among other features. In 2010, the Visitor Center received an award for “Green Building Retrofit of the Year” at the annual Mid-Willamette Valley Green Awards.
The 100 Best Green Companies in 2016 were selected based on employer surveys completed last year by more than 15,000 employees from the for-profit and non-profit sectors. The “100 Best Green Companies to Work For in Oregon” is featured in the June issue of Oregon Business magazine.
