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 center’s sustainability advisers visited the office to evaluate the efforts.

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.

The center is a partnership of Portland’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Water Bureau, the Portland Development Commission, Metro, Pacific Power and Portland General Electric.

  1. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of
    unique content I’ve either written myself or
    outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without
    my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
