Sustainability Statement
We are Portland's flagship eco-savvy building. We're the first historic renovation in the nation to become Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certified. We've are a RecycleWorks Award Recipient.We offset our facility's electrical (carbon) use by purchasing Green Tags from Bonneville Environmental Foundation. As of January 2008, we've banned the use of plastic water bottles in our event facility. Events can produce plenty of post-consumer waste. To deal with this, we have a compost bin and comprehensive recycling containers and we're not afraid to ask you to use them. Our parking lot is intentionally small not to frustrate you, but to encourage you to ride your bike (We have ample bike parking), to walk, and to take public transportation (We're a stop on the Portland Streetcar line). As a nonprofit organization, we exist to provide a green venue in which communities can gather to share ideas and make plans to change the world. To make our venue more accessible to organizations with varied means, we discount our rates for nonprofits.Ecologically sound forestry is paramount to our mission. This manifests in a very tangible way in our building. We've used top notch wood to deck our halls. During renovation, if we couldn't reclaim wood from the existing structure, we sourced Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood. To learn more about Ecotrust's myriad sustainable forestry initiatives visit our Forestry program page. 98% of our building's storm water is managed on site. This means it stays out of the Willamette River where it doesn't belong. We do this with brilliant technology and gravity. Learn more about our ecoroof (It helps regulate our building's temperature too!) and bioswales here. And last, though perhaps not the sexiest (though certainly one of our most celebrated eco-amenities), we are the first privately owned building in the State of Oregon to install waterless urinals.
