PBS Engineering + Environmental not only provides services that support sustainable industries and development, but is also committed to sustainability in the workplace. The company relocated its Portland headquarters into an existing abandoned building that was remodeled and certified as an Earth Advantage green building. The centralized location is well served by public transportation, and the company provides TriMet passes to all employees. Bike racks and showers are available for those who cycle to work.

With an extensive recycling system, PBS is well on its way to Zero Waste, with only 5 percent of its business waste treated as solid waste. The company is a committed community partner, supporting nonprofits with financial contributions and volunteers and purchasing local and sustainable products whenever available.

PBS has now joined the ranks of other good corporate citizens in offsetting carbon emissions from its use of natural gas through Smart Energy.
