Greater Portland offers the ideal environment for growing green companies. If you’re thinking of relocating or expanding in the Portland metro area, We Build Green Cities can help.
The We Build Green Cities initiative supports companies offering products, services and technologies that address the climate change crisis, adapt to the effects of climate change and benefit the environment. Prosper Portland, the City of Portland’s economic development agency, manages the initiative and collaborates with Greater Portland, Inc and regional economic development organizations to support Green Cities companies throughout the Portland metro region. The Green Cities cluster is competitive and growing, and provides more than 20,000 jobs across nearly 1,000 firms in Multnomah County alone. This initiative provides tools and networking support for companies in four broad categories:
- Environmental Products & Services
- Built Environment
