Oregon is moving on a path to zero energy and zero energy ready
buildings that will grow our economy and reduce the impacts of
climate change. Putting building construction on the path to zero energy use is the most cost-effective and immediately available strategy for lowering greenhouse gas emissions in the built environment.

In 2017, Governor Kate Brown signed Executive Order 17-20 that mandates code amendments to require newly constructed buildings to become more energy efficient by 2023. The executive order sets Oregon on the path to zero energy by 2030.

To achieve this endpoint by 2030, ZERO has brought together a coalition of nonprofit, local government, and industry STAKEHoLDERS to help put all buildings in Oregon on the path to zero energy.
