About Sustainable Building Week


The second Monday of every October kicks off the annual Sustainable Building Week (SBW), which will offer 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.


Sustainable Building Week 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. We also host monthly events to support year long engagement.

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