The green building industry may soon be an important player in Portland's economy, according to a report from the Portland Development Commission and the City of Portland Office of Sustainable Development.
"Economic Opportunities for Portland's Green Building Industry," identifies green building products, services and systems that could provide economic benefits for the city and state.
A key goal of the report was to identify opportunities for import substitutions which could improve regional capacity and benefit the region economically.
"We know green building is good for the environment. Now this study adds to our understanding of green building as a positive business opportunity," said Bruce Warner, executive director of the Portland Development Commission.
The report is intended to stimulate discussion among green building and economic development professionals. The full text of  "Economic Opportunities for Portland's Green Building Industry" is available at www.pdc.us/sustainable.
