Thanks for all you do, Portland!

Families playing in public fountain

For years, Portland residents, businesses and local leaders have worked together to make our city healthier, more livable and vibrant.

Together, we have:

Cut carbon emissions by 41 percent per person (since 1990)!

Increased compost and recycling from 46 percent to almost 70 percent over the past five years.

Enhanced the livability of our neighborhoods by supporting local businesses and growing neighborhood centers.

Decreased our reliance on gasoline by 29 percent per person (since 1990). About 6 percent of Portlanders bike to work and transit ridership has doubled!

Doubled the number of farmers markets and community-supported agriculture farms (CSAs) serving Portland in the past eight years.

Installed more than 5,600 solar systems.

A better future. A better now.
