We set goals and implement initiatives where people, planet, and profit are considered equally. We do this in a way which create replicable models so that other communities may learn and benefit from our successes. We prioritize projects which address transportation, waste prevention, and energy efficiency through a lens of social equity and well-being.
Lloyd EcoDistrict History
In 2009 the City of Portland, the Portland Development Commission (now Prosper Portland), and other local government interests convened a group of Lloyd District stakeholders to determine the feasibility of a “Green District.” There was interest on the part of business leaders and property owners to engage in the effort, so much so that Lloyd business owners directly supported the initiative for the first three years. In 2014, Lloyd EcoDistrict was formally funded by the Enhance Services District, which now gives us direct support until 2024.
In the beginning, our work was focused on creating a business case and value proposition for sustainability, directed mainly to employers and employees of Lloyd. As our work developed and as we became more involved in the community, our mission and our vision expanded to include a wider definition of sustainability, and a more inclusive view of the entire spectrum of our community.
Lloyd EcoDistrict is a partner and collaborator: we work to find ways to help the community be its best selves. Our organization serves as incubator of ideas, convener of future partners, and cheerleader for solving problems that we can solve together. We want to work with YOU! Come join us.
