Oregonians in 2050 Produce and Use Materials Responsibly
Conserving Resources · Protecting the Environment · Living Well
Many environmental challenges facing Oregon and the world, such as pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, relate to how we produce, use, and manage materials. To address these challenges, DEQ’s Materials Management program has a long-term vision for Oregon.
In this vision:
- Producers make products sustainably, so every option is a sustainable option.
- People live well and consume sustainably.
- Materials have the most useful life possible before and after discard.
What is Materials Management?
Materials management takes a holistic view of environmental impacts across the full life cycle of materials, as well as actions that can be taken to reduce those impacts. It includes resource extraction and use of recovered materials, the design and production of materials, their use, and end-of-life management, including solid waste disposal and recovery.
