We do what works.
See how we're doing with each 2030 Performance Objective:
The City of Portland has systematically pursued sustainability in its internal operations since the early 1990s, when City Council first adopted Sustainable City Principles. The City’s current environmental performance objectives were adopted in 2015 to renew the city’s commitments and establish targets for 2030.
Reduce carbon emissions from City operations 53 percent below FY 06–07 levels
Reduce energy use in City operations 2 percent annually
Generate or purchase 100 percent of all electricity for City operations from renewable resources
Recover 90 percent of waste from City operations by 2030
Reduce fleet vehicle carbon emissions 10 percent from Fiscal Year 06-07 levels
Water use is the same or less than Fiscal Year 06–07 levels
