3 Competing Models of Sustainability Increasingly, a Portland neighborhood is defined by whether it has meaningful environmental assets: parks, habitat, transit, bike/pedestrian infrastructure, renewable energy and energy efficiency, stormwater management, environmental education, green jobs and green businesses. Portland’s growing sustainability movement makes purposeful investments in certain places and people, in certain businesses and institutions, creating vibrant, healthy and environmentally beneficial communities. But this movement does not prioritize equity, does not build environmental wealth in low-income and people of color, in their neighborhoods, or in their businesses and institutions. Portland’s low-income people and people of color spend their daily lives in places that suffer disproportionate environmental impacts, in environmentally-deficient places like NE Portland’s Cully neighborhood. Marginalized, they are excluded from routine opportunities that build environmental wealth for other people.
