This is the inaugural post of the Oregon Sustainability Center blog. It’s a place to find updates on the Center’s development, explore building technologies & best practices and discover innovative projects around the world.
The Oregon Sustainability Center is the project of a public-private collaboration striving to accelerate Oregon’s leadership in sustainability. This collaboration – which includes key players in government, academia, nonprofits and private industry – sees the Center as not only the place to push leading-edge building technologies, but also a project that will drive a sustainable economy. Plus, it’ll be a place where these diverse groups will let ideas spark and fly – all while engaging the public in the latest developments in sustainability.
The mission of this project is to create a world-class center of excellence in sustainability that celebrates and nurtures the values and strengths of Oregon’s leadership in climate change, land use planning, smart growth, green building, environmental stewardship, civic engagement and social justice.
We hope you are excited by what you find here.
