Doing Our Part
Aspen Environmental Group is more than a place to work – it’s also a place to grow. Aspen strives to foster an atmosphere of teamwork and personal development, while imparting values of environmental sustainability, charitable giving, continuing education, and economic progress. We think it’s important to feel good about what we do and how we do it.
Aspen strives to maximize the degree to which we operate in a sustainable manner, with the understanding that sustainable business practices include all actions and decisions which serve to effectively reduce Aspen’s ecological footprint and contribute to environmental and social sustainability. Aspen’s Sustainability Policy focuses on making clear, direct, and conscious efforts which improve our contribution towards sustainability through internal coordination and education, as well as collaboration with like-minded companies and organizations. Integral to Aspen’s corporate vision of being the premier integrated and interdisciplinary provider of environmental compliance, planning, and engineering services for energy, natural resource, and infrastructure projects in the western United States, is this clear and public declaration of our commitment to sustainability.
In 2011, Aspen’s headquarters office moved to a newly constructed LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) candidate building in Agoura Hills, California. The building was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in areas of human and environmental health, sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

By nature, a company that cares about the environment is a company that cares about community. Throughout the years, Aspen and its employees have made contributions to a wide array of organizations and given back to the community. To encourage such acts of kindness, Aspen has instituted a policy allowing each staff member a paid day off each year to perform volunteer work.
