Corporate Responsibility

NWESI meets the highest standards of ethics and professionalism throughout its business practices.

Environmental Sustainability

We proactively protect the environment by conserving energy, recycling, and incorporating environmentally friendly technologies and products as part of the regular work environment.  We participate in programs that support sustainability as part of everyday operations, working with regional waste management agencies to follow prescribed guidelines.  NWESI and its division, Air Introduction and Regulation, are proud to have received awards from both Washington County and Lane County, certifying our sustainable business practices.

WE CARE ABOUT DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

NWESI fully supports Equal Employment Opportunity, Affirmative Action, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.  We are committed to an Affirmative Action Plan designed to recruit, hire, promote, and retain qualified minorities, including women and individuals with disabilities (IWDs).  As an employee-owned company, NWESI prides itself in the diversity of its employees.

WE WANT TO WORK WITH YOU

NWESI actively seeks business partners that are certified through Oregon’s Certification Office for Business Inclusion and Diversity (COBID), Washington State Office of Minority & Women’s Business Enterprise (OMWBE), or with similar certifications in other States, Counties, or Municipalities. We also participate in regional organizations that promote diversity and inclusion.

WE GIVE BACK TO COMMUNITIES

We encourage employees to give back to their communities by donating their time and talents to charities that make the most difference to their families and neighborhoods, as a way of encouraging direct involvement and to ensure financial support has more impact at local levels.  Examples of these are sponsoring employees participating in physical activity-centered fundraisers, such as “Walks” for a cause, and donating to charities that employees volunteer for in their communities.  We support community investment and educational programs, especially those that prepare youth for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers and those serving minorities or communities historically considered “underprivileged”.

WE ENCOURAGE GOOD HEALTH AND WELL BEING

We recognize that two of the most important treasures people have are physical health and emotional well-being.  NWESI is dedicated to ensuring all employees are safe throughout the workday, every week, every month, and every year.  Besides safety in our workplace we offer substantial Benefits for employees and their family members’ health.  We encourage physical activity outside the work environment by offering charitable donations for events involving walking, running, etc.  An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is purchase for each employee by NWESI through Pacific NW Consulting Engineers Health & Welfare Trust (PNCE).  EAP offers a number of services to employees, including discounted gym memberships and personal wellness activities.
