October 14, 2019 kicks off the second annual Sustainable Building Week (SBW) an event-filled week from a cross section of Portland’s design professional organizations. The week will bring the best and brightest building professional organizations together to educate, connect and foster opportunities for future collaboration to Keep Portland Green. Whether its combating climate change, protecting our natural resources or investigating the increasing number of dangerous chemicals in our indoor spaces, the multitude of issues that need to be addressed require more attention by all of us.

Why does this event exist?

We aim to Keep Portland Green. Over the years we’ve watched our beautiful city fall from a leadership position in the green building industry. Now we’ve become a middle of the pack green city with unexpected conservative cities surpassing us (good for them!) We plan to change that and remind the local industry that we must reclaim the throne and show the world what sustainability really is!
