Standing Stone Ranks #2 Best Green Company in Oregon

We’re raising our glasses at Standing Stone Brewing Co. to toast our ranking asaward the #2 Best Green Company in Oregon! The designation comes from Oregon Business Magazine and its annual review of the Top 100 Best Green Companies. We’ve been in the Top 10 each of the past four years, and we’re thrilled to earn this coveted spot on the list.

More than 300 people came out to watch the unveiling of the Top 10 Best Green Businesses at the awards ceremony Wednesday at The Nines Hotel in Portland, OR. The keynote speaker, Oregon’s first lady Cylvia Hayes, engaged the crowd about social responsibility and the amazing work that companies are doing all over our state. We thank Oregon Business for hosting this great event and bringing together a room full of passionate and pioneering business representatives from our region.

During the presentation for Standing Stone’s award as the #2 Company, the bike programRPM Bike Program, waste management program and Farm Project all were acknowledged as top reasons why Standing Stone continues to make the list. We’re overjoyed with the recognition and want to thank our employees for all their commitment and innovation that make these programs successful!

Here’s how the ranking works: Every year Oregon Business offers an anonymous employee survey to companies all over the state. From this survey and independent research they compile a list of the Top 100 Best Companies to Work For, Top 100 Green Companies and Top 100 Best Nonprofits. Employees rank how satisfied they are with their company’s efforts in various areas, as well as how important those efforts are to the individual. In 2013, they heard from 440 companies and over 18,000 employees! We want to send a big thank you to all our coworkers for taking the time to fill out the survey so that we can join this list year after year.

This year, we are extra proud to represent Southern Oregon in sustainable melza farmbusiness operations and innovation alongside Rogue Creamery of Central Point. Our friends, the world-famous makers of artisan cheese, jumped from number 48 to 10! Congratulations, Rogue Creamery, and kudos for all you do.

You can view the entire list of the Top 100 Best Green Companies, and be sure to congratulate any names you recognize! A lot of these businesses are forming unique and creative programs to constantly improve sustainable operations, and we have much to learn and gain from the various models. Until next year, we’ll continue improving upon all we do at Standing Stone and hope to be on the Top 10 list again in 2014!
