For the fourth year in a row, Portland, Oregon has been topping the list of most sustainable city in the United States. SustainLane.com has ranked the 50 biggest U.S. cities by their sustainability and Portland has been number one since the beginning (2005).
“Sustainable” is of course a term that is notoriously ambiguous, so you may want to check out their criteria on their website. They seem to be taking a wide variety of facets into account. Variables like commuting options, green spaces, local food sources, government innovations and disaster preparedness all add up to Portland being a fabulous place to live now, and in the future.
