Green Team members celebrate being named an EnviroStars Tier 2 Partner

Floyd|Snider is pleased to announce that the firm has been recognized as an EnviroStars Tier 2 Partner by the Washington State EnviroStars Program! The EnviroStars Program is structured as a checklist, with businesses gaining points for each green action taken in a variety of categories, including energy conservation, pollution prevention, solid waste, wastewater, and water conservation. Floyd|Snider scored a total of 425 points, well above the threshold of 300 points for Tier 2 recognition, which establishes the firm as a sustainable business leader in the Puget Sound region.

Recent and ongoing actions to reduce the firm’s environmental footprint include:

  • Encouraging employees to seek low carbon/carbon neutral transportation to and from the office via a commuting stipend and a dedicated bike storage room.
  • Forming a “Green Team,” a group of employees responsible for assessing the firm’s environmental footprint and recommending ways to improve.
  • Posting signage and educating staff to ensure that materials from office and field operations enter the appropriate waste stream.
  • Maintaining office space in Two Union Square, a Leed Platinum and Energy Star Rated building.

As part of being recognized as a EnviroStars Tier 2 Partner, Floyd|Snider is now listed in Washington State’s Green Business Directory. The firm looks forward to continually assessing its business practices and identifying more ways to reduce its impact on the environment.
