About Sustainable Building Week

SUSTAINABLE BUILDING WEEK

October 11, 2021 kicks off the fourth annual Sustainable Building Week (SBW) an event-filled week from a cross section of Portland’s design professional organizations. SBW 2021 will run one week with a balance of in-person and virtual events. Our aim is to bring the best and brightest 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.

OUR MISSION

Sustainable Building Week works to Keep Portland Green. SBW offers a week of events to break down siloed thinking to improve cross-disciplinary education, connectivity and future collaboration to promote sustainable practices and design across the city of Portland and beyond.

Sustainable Building Week is a 501(c) 3 Non-profit organization registered with the State of Oregon.
