Working Together for Global Success

The City of Portland has played a critical role in fostering growth among environmental sustainability businesses by adopting policies that create a demand for cleantech products and services. Our companies have developed the expertise to deploy green technologies and create green cities.  The We Build Green Cities initiative capitalizes on that expertise and Portland’s reputation as one of the world’s greenest cities to open doors for our firms and translate that reputation into business development and new export opportunities.
