We Build Green Cities is a project of the Portland Sustainability Institute in partnership with Business Oregon, the City of Portland and the Portland Development Commission. The goal of We Build Green Cities is to better connect Portland's green innovations, intellectual capital and products with the rest of the world.
For the first time in world history, more people live in cities than not. Improving how people live in cities is one of the world's biggest challenges. Portland is a leader in imagining the future of cities. Over the last 40 years, we've gone from grey to green. Portland is now of the few cities that has improved its economy and environment; our spirit of craft, innovation, community and originality has created a high-growth, low-carbon city. Along the way, we've learned how to save money and resources and do more with less. We got here through innovation, and we're now exporting our best ideas and products to other cities aspiring to be green.
The We Build Green Cities website is full of resources to help you build your own green city. We hope that you'll join us in building green cities everywhere. Please contact us to learn more.
