Problem Solved


What is Problem Solved?

This annual event brings together sustainability-minded individuals from organizations across Portland, with the goal of sharing challenges and advice on workplace sustainability efforts.

The event allows attendees to talk directly with one another, in two rounds of facilitated small group discussions.

Participants gain valuable insights, creative solutions and unique perspective from businesses across many sizes and sectors. The event is casual and fun, with drinks, good food and honest dialogue with peers.


When’s the next event?

Problem Solved is usually held once a year. The next event will be announced through our e-mail newsletter and social media. Sign up for our newsletter, or start following us on facebook and twitter.

What attendees have to say:

“The Problem Solved event was great. I love the interaction between like-minded sustainable companies and I can’t wait to pass on the notes to my Green Team. I also made some great contacts that could help us with new ideas as well. I am coming to all of these events from now on.” – Stanley Carpenter, Beneficial State Bank
