100 Best Green Companies to Work for in Oregon

Mountain Rose Herbs' Green Workplaces Award

Since its inception, Mountain Rose Herbs has put plants, people, and planet before profit. Led by these values, weve been a longtime leader on the list of green companies, helping to positively shape the herbal industry with environmentally focused initiatives. Our core values revolve around sustainability and as such, weve implemented innovative programs in energy efficiency, zero waste, and alternative commuting incentives.

WHAT ARE GREEN COMPANIES?

While the definition can vary in its details, green companies are essentially businesses that commit to practices that positively impact their community and the environment. Most states have created an award system to recognize the regional businesses that are the best employers based on their commitment to employees, community, and the planet.

This brings us to Oregon Business' 100 Best Green Workplaces in Oregon 2022. Several months ago, employees throughout the state participated in an anonymous survey, rating the importance of sustainable initiatives in their workplace and their satisfaction with those policies. In addition, employers were independently scored on their answers to a list of 15 sustainability-oriented questions.

A HEARTFELT THANK YOU

We would like to give our employees a heartfelt thank you for voting us into the top 25 of the 100 Best Green Companies to Work for in Oregon. Mountain Rose Herbs' ranking is a testament to our hard work and dedicated staff, we truly couldnt do it without them. We are honored to receive this award which showcases the best-in-class Oregon businesses with sustainable workplace practices.

We take our environmental and social responsibilities seriously by supporting numerous nonprofits, providing free herbal education, and ensuring we use the greenest options available in our facilities. We realize this is a constant work in progress and that there is always room for improvement. But were happy to show up every day to walk the walk and support employees who are dedicated to doing the same. In the words of Mountain Rose Herbs' CEO and Owner, Shawn Donnille, onwards!
