Lloyd EcoDistrict: A model of sustainability

In the inner Northeast Portland area known as the Lloyd District, there’s an innovative, thriving coalition of businesses, residents and organizations that have come together with one audacious goal: to become the most sustainable living-and-working district in North America.

We’re working to achieve that goal using a “triple bottom line” approach that emphasizes people, planet and profit in equal consideration. Our projects and policies all embrace this approach, because we know our success will ultimately be measured in all three areas.

We’re accomplishing great things in transportation, water, energy and waste. And we want every business case and public project to be both viable and replicable, so we can lead by example and others can learn from our efforts and our successes.
