The Portland office of engineering and consulting firm Mazzetti Nash Lipsey Burch is the first Portland business to receive the BEST Business Center’s new “Portland Climate Champion” recognition, an honor awarded to businesses that go above and beyond in their efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
To achieve the champion status, the firm improved the energy efficiency of its business operations, provided alternative transportation options for employees and implemented a comprehensive waste reduction and recycling program.
The BEST Business Center provides free tools and advice to help businesses in Portland become more profitable and sustainable. It streamlines access to financial incentives and technical assistance for greening business operations.
