Central Point, Oregon-based Rogue Creamery has been ranked No. 1 in Oregon Business Magazine’s annual list of the 100 Best Green Workplaces in the state. Though the cheesemaker has consistently made the list for 13 years in a row, this is the first year Rogue Creamery earned first place.

Oregon Business annually showcases companies and nonprofits whose employees rate their employers’ sustainability efforts highly. Ninkasi Brewing, Elephants Delicatessen and Energy Trust of Oregon are among other Oregon companies to make the list. 

“It means so much to be ranked the No. 1 Green Workplace in Oregon. It’s a testament to the care and dedication of our staff to making championship-worthy cheese in a responsible and forward-thinking way,” said David Gremmels, president and lead cheesemaker of Rogue Creamery.

Rogue Creamery became Oregon’s first B Corporation in 2014. Since 2017, Rogue has ranked in the top 10 percent (and by 2021, the top 5 percent) of B Corps worldwide for its impact on people and planet.  

“Rogue Creamery uses cheese as our force for good in the world, balancing purpose with profit and considering the broader, community-wide impact of everything we do,” Gremmels said.

The award also comes on the one-year anniversary of the recognition from the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy: the U.S. Dairy Sustainability Award for Outstanding Dairy Processing and Manufacturing. The award commended Rogue Creamery for its commitment to dairy sustainability, including programs for renewable energy and waste reduction, such as solar panel installation, reduced packaging waste and their employee commuter program. 

Rogue Creamery was also honored on Oregon Business’ 2022 list of the 100 “Best Companies to Work For.”

“Together, these recognitions highlight our commitment to corporate social responsibility, evident at every desk and workspace at Rogue,” Gremmels said. “It fills me with pride to see our team creating such a positive, productive and environmentally-sustainable business model – for our state, our partners in cheese and all businesses that aim to do right by their people and planet.”
