Sustainability

As ardent admirers of the Pacific Northwest’s natural beauty, we are increasingly mindful of the impact our ecological footprint has on the local, regional and global environment.

Oregon Business magazine recognized our commitment to sustainability by including Schwabe on its list of the 100 Best Green Companies to Work For in 2009. Our achievements include:

  • Recycling 5,200 pounds of paper per month
  • Purchasing recycled products
  • Working with suppliers who use minimal packaging
  • Encouraging our employees’ use of mass transit and bicycle commuting
  • Archiving files electronically to reduce paper use
  • Installing lights that shut off when rooms are empty
  • Placing compost bins in all kitchen stations
  • Collecting home batteries for recycling
