Environment: Waste reduction and recovery, purchasing clean energy, and considering impacts on water quality are essential strategies for our community to reduce greenhouse gas impacts and reach our community targets.
Economy: Sustainable purchasing practices advance the local economy and create supply chains. The Joint Elected Officials of Eugene, Springfield, and Lane County created a shared vision of our economic future through a Regional Prosperity Economic Development Plan. This vision meets the pressing economic problems of today while laying the foundation for a sustainable future based on emerging green innovation and technology.
Equity: Organizers bridge the gap to make events more inclusive by increasing accessibility for disabled persons and by engaging non-traditional participants in attending events. The City of Eugene’s Diversity and Equity Strategic Plan is Eugene's formal policy on equity and human rights and part of the triple bottom line standard with which any organization hosting a sustainable event in Eugene should consider.
