Sustainable Building Week works to Keep Portland Green. SBW offers two weeks of virtual 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. We’re excited to bring you the fourth annual Sustainable Building Week on
October 11 – 16, 2021!



Learn from leading thinkers and innovators in the ecobuilding community. A lineup of fantastic speakers will inspire you for the year ahead.


Join hundreds of talented leaders, professionals and advocates at the Northwest Green Building Slam. This annual event aims to reconnect people and re-energize our vision to drive the green building movement forward.


Find out what your peers have been working on, and share what you've accomplished in the past year. Exchanging ideas, tips and tools is the best way to transform the built environment for long term sustainability.

You must be logged into your account profile to access and renew your membership subscription. Contact us with membership questions.
