The Advisory Committee on Sustainability & Innovation (ACSI) provides advice and advocacy to Multnomah County on sustainability issues affecting our community, the environment, and the economy. Members of the ACSI will provide recommendations on implementing the 2009 Climate Action Plan, sustainable government operations, improving social equity, and promoting a healthy, prosperous and resilient community. Members will also evaluate proposals for innovations in technology and business processes that may be applicable to county operations.
The Advisory Committee on Sustainability and Innovation (ACSI) is now accepting applications. There are currently four spots available on the twelve member committee and applications are due December 5th by 5pm. The committee is comprised of professionals and community leaders who advise Multnomah County on important issues facing our communities. In the past year, ACSI has helped the County investigate options for a commercial PACE program and has advocated for more study on the health impacts of diesel particulate emissions. ACSI members also provide recommendations on implementing the 2009 Climate Action Plan, developing sustainable government operations, improving social equity, and promoting a healthy, prosperous and resilient community.
Committee members are appointed by Jeff Cogen, Chair of the Multnomah County’s Board of Commissioners, to serve a two year term. County employees and employees of organizations doing business with the County are not eligible. Applicants must work or live in Multnomah County.
Given that sustainability issues have the greatest impact on low-income communities and communities of color, Multnomah County highly encourage representatives from these communities to apply.
