Event details

Climate staff will talk about the Climate Emergency Workplan and what we’re doing to meet the City’s climate goals.

Climate action is complicated work. Not only does it rely on new and emerging technologies – as well as businesses, government agencies, and nonprofits – for implementation, it can only succeed with the support and participation of community members. 

We’re here to answer your questions, explain how different policies and initiatives work, and talk about roles and responsibilities for the coalition of government, private sector and community organizations that are all needed to get to net zero.

We are all in this together. And it’s all hands on deck if we are to reach our carbon reduction goals by 2050. Join us for a lively conversation about how the City of Portland, our partners in the public and private sector, and the community can make a difference in our climate future.

Sign up for the Dec. 6 event

This event is the first in a new series called “Climate Conversations with BPS” where members of the community can learn more about the City’s climate work and ask questions of staff. The Dec. 6 event will be an opportunity to learn more about three of six topics, which attendees can vote for during a live poll:

  1. Transportation Electrification
  2. Climate and Health Standards
  3. Clean Industry Hub
  4. Home Energy Score
  5. Clean Electricity for All
  6. Embodied Carbon/Deconstruction

Future events and topics of focus will be announced in 2023.

Learn more about Portland's sources of emissions and trends, and our pathways to net-zero carbon by 2050.
