We Build Green Cities

Check out this video highlighting Portland's national leadership in sustainability. Chronicling our city’s journey from being nicknamed “Stumptown” to becoming “Green City” — and the steps taken by the community to increase livability, bring nature back to the city, create ecodistricts, improve transportation and grow our industries. It’s inspiring stuff!

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. In fact, Mayor Sam Adams and a consortium of eight clean tech companies recently showed the video during meetings in Hong Kong to recruit new investment for Portland, and support the growth of Portland business overseas. 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.
