TMT Development is honored to be recognized by Oregon Business Magazine as one of the Best 100 Green Workplaces in Oregon.  Companies selected for this honor are determined by an anonymous employee survey and an independent assessment of the employers’ sustainability practices.

TMT is committed to sustainable development and aims to be one of Portland’s “green leaders.” Several TMT Development properties are either LEED certified or in the process of becoming LEED certified through efforts such as retrofitting lights and reducing building-wide water consumption. In addition, TMT achieved Gold certification through the City of Portland Sustainability at Work division in 2014. This certification recognizes a business’s positive impact on the environment and the local community.
