Did you know that Samara Group is also Silver Certified through the City of Portland’s Sustainability at Work program? This program offers three levels of certification (certified, silver, and gold) to recognize your business’s positive impact on our environment and our community. This certification and associated services allows Samara Group to recognize and expand sustainable office efforts including recycling and reuse of materials. Currently, Samara Group staff are working towards improvement of personal and building practices to advance to Gold certification.
