Portland Community College | Portland, Oregon

We’re all in this together

At Portland Community College, we’re doing our part to shrink our carbon footprint and promote healthy, equitable systems. As leaders in sustainable purchasing and green building practices for institutions of higher education, PCC demonstrates its commitment to sustainability in the following ways:

  • As the only community college in the nation to be a founding member of the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council.
  • By practicing a closed loop system on the PCC Rock Creek Campus, producing cafeteria food in campus gardens and returning food waste to the soil in the form of compost.
  • By achieving LEED Platinum and Gold certifications while striving for Silver as the minimum on PCC’s newest construction projects.
