Forum Breakfast: Portland’s Green Evolution: Public-Private Partnerships for a Sustainable Economy

Thursday, April 13, 2023 (8:30 AM - 10:00 AM) (PDT)


In honor of Earth Day, our April Forum Breakfast will focus on how Portland positions itself to be a leader in the low carbon economy of the future, and how the public and private sector can work together to can ensure businesses can meet both their climate and revenue goals. 

Drawing on best practices from countries like Denmark, our panelists will discuss how industry and government can actually partner to reduce carbon emissions. 

Particular focus will be on industrial symbiosis, industry led decarbonization, and how the City of Portland’s revamped Portland Clean Energy Fund (PCEF) will support these partnerships.

April Panelists:

Corky Collier, Executive Director, Columbia Corridor Association

Benton Strong, Senior Manager Public Affairs, Vigor, LLC

Donnie Oliveira, Director, Bureau Planning and Sustainability, City of Portland
