For decades, the City of Portland has valued and prioritized local action on climate change.
“Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time, and the most pressing global issue we face. Any vision for the future of our city needs to acknowledge climate change. It isn’t just our planet that’s at stake, it’s our very existence.” – Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler
Partnership with the world’s greatest cities has become more important than ever to influence the global conversations on climate change. Through collaborations like the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, the Urban Sustainability Directors Network and the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance, cities are sharing best practices, challenges and successes.
To support this important work, Portland would like to take this opportunity to thank the City of Chicago for publishing the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s website on climate change in its entirety:
“The City of Chicago wishes to acknowledge and attribute this information to the United States Environmental Protection Agency and other federal agencies for the decades of work that they have done to advance the fight against climate change. While this information may not be readily available on the agency’s webpage right now, here in Chicago we know climate change is real and we will continue to take action to fight it.”
