Corporate Responsibility

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

Environmental Sustainability

We protect the environment by conserving energy, recycling, and incorporating environmentally friendly technologies and products as part of our regular work environment. We support sustainability by 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 on 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 important to their families and neighborhoods, and effecting positive change at a local level. Examples of this are sponsoring employee participation in physical activity centered fundraisers, such as “Walks” for a cause, and donating to charities that our employees champion. We further support a myriad of educational programs—especially those that prepare youth for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers—and are invested in those serving minorities and underprivileged communities.

WE ENCOURAGE GOOD HEALTH AND WELL BEING

We recognize that two of the most important components of people’s lives 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. We offer substantial benefits to employees and their family members’ health to support this. We encourage physical activity outside of work by offering incentives to our employees’ preferred charities for events involving walking, running, and others. An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is purchased 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.
