Multnomah County's mission is to protect those most vulnerable in our community. This mission shapes the way we approach sustainability, an approach firmly rooted in achieiving social, economic and environmental justice.
The Office of Sustainability uses sustainability principles to further the mission of the County, because:
The best solution to environmental problems is to eradicate the root causes of injustice in our community;
Our entire community thrives when we meet the needs of our most vulnerable; and
Community-driven solution solutions are more effective and long lasting
With strong support from County leadership, and in partnership with programs that deliver critical community services such as the Health Department, Department of County Human Services and others, Multnomah County is working to ensure all residents have the right to a sustainable and healthy environment.
