Sustainability and Social Equity
The goal of a sustainable economy reaches far beyond Portland’s healthy roster
of green buildings and green practices. The concept of social equity, and an economy
that sustains every corner of the community, is the foundation of PDC’s work towards this
strategic goal. Policies and programs are developed to center on public benefits and
value for Portland - the positive outcomes for citizens and the community. Innovative approaches to support small businesses; the deployment of PDC’s unique position as a convener of diverse communities; and a strong commitment to workplace diversity are the hallmarks of PDC’s efforts in this arena.
