Green Metro: Oregon
Last week Metro announced its progress toward sustainability goals in internal operations. Metro’s second report shows a year of results reaching key objectives in its Sustainability Plan, highlighted with success stories and strategies for further improvement. As a regional government committed to promoting environmental stewardship, and policies that help create and maintain healthy and livable communities, Metro is working to reduce its own ecological footprint and to be a good steward of public resources.
The report details progress in Metro’s five goal areas related to operating more sustainably: reducing carbon emissions, choosing nontoxic products, preventing waste, conserving water and enhancing habitat.
