About Andrea Durbin:
Andrea Durbin was named to lead the Portland bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) by Mayor Ted Wheeler in April, 2019. Andrea Durbin has over 20 years of effective environmental policy leadership in Portland and beyond. For the past 13 years, Andrea served as the Executive Director of Oregon Environmental Council. She has also worked in consulting, which allowed her to advise clients in the financial sector on the development of their environmental and social standards for international lending practices. Additionally, she has worked as a National Campaign Director for Greenpeace and as International Program Director for Friends of the Earth.
Andrea brings a collaborative and equity-centered approach to BPS, which aligns with the mission and values of the bureau. Her experience in advancing sound and effective environmental policy here in Oregon will be a welcome addition to the City of Portland’s staff as we work collectively to meet the challenges posed by the reality of climate change.
Lunch will be provided.
