Event Description

As part of the Second Annual Sustainable Building Week, USGBC Oregon will host a panel on impact projects to support equity and access (Green for All). The panel will be moderated by Kimberly Lewis, Senior Vice President, Market Transformation and Development, North America, U.S. Green Building Council.

Sustainable Building Week (SBW) is an event-filled week from a cross section of Portland’s design professional organizations. The week will bring building professional organizations 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 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.
