PUBLIC & VISITORS | Sustainability
Built with sustainability in mind, the Oregon Convention Center (OCC) has long held a leadership role in green building and other environmentally responsible business practices. In 2004, the OCC was the first convention center to earn LEED® for Existing Buildings certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. In 2008, the facility was recertified at the Silver level and operates with a pledge to continually reduce its environmental footprint, and to educate its staff, clients and visitors on the importance of working together toward a sustainable future. Along with Travel Portland, Metro, and the people and City of Portland, the OCC has helped to establish Portland, Oregon's national reputation as a premier destination for green meetings and events.
