The workplace culture at Salas O'Brien is deeply immersed in creating sustainable environments. Besides ensuring the best interests of the public as well as our clients’ satisfaction, BuildGreen is a core component of everything we do, say, and implement.
Our team members bring years of experience with addressing issues surrounding the protection of natural resources and conserving energy... in both the professional and personal areas of our lives. Each of us strive to allow future generations enjoy quality living.
Our hearts and minds are so dedicated toward actively initiating methods to be greener that Salas O’Brien offers the following incentives and subsidies to our team members toward investing in sustainability:
