For decades, Portland has valued and prioritized local action on climate change.
“Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time, and the most pressing global issue we face. Any vision for the future of our city needs to acknowledge climate change. It isn’t just our planet that’s at stake, it’s our very existence.” – Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler
Partnership with the world’s greatest cities has become more important than ever to influence the global conversations on climate change. Through collaborations like the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, the Urban Sustainability Directors Network and the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance, cities are sharing best practices, challenges and successes.
To support this important work, Portland is joining with the city of Chicago and 11 other cities across the U.S. in re-publishing the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s website on climate change.
