Sustainability has been a part of who we are from the beginning and is written into our Articles of Incorporation. Our goal is to minimize our environmental footprint, and maximize our societal impact. We realize that sustainability is a marathon, not a sprint, and is an eternal learning process. Employees are encouraged to commute sustainably. We offer discounts on carsharing through Zipcar, access to bikes, flexible telecommuting options, and encourage use of public transportation to meetings on TriMet. We're a Recycle at Work partner. We utilize paperless collaboration on fmyi, computers rated at least a silver through EPEAT, business cards from Pinball Publishing, and office products from Green Home. Sustainability is also part of the criteria we use when evaluating vendors. Every employee goes through Natural Step training and can take advantage of volunteer opportunities. We’re using our business as a platform to raise awareness about sustainability. It's how we empower teams to make a difference.
