The City of Portland’s 2016 Sustainable Supply Chain Analysis identified construction services as the top spend category contributing to the City’s supply chain greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Within construction services, concrete is one of the most GHG-intensive materials typically used on City-owned construction projects. By requiring product-specific Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) and using those EPDs to select lower impact mixes for Portland Cement Concrete, the City seeks to reduce GHG emissions associated with concrete use on City projects.
For questions about the Concrete EPD Initiative, please contact Procurement Services Sustainable Procurement Program staff.
