​Interagency ​​S​​ustainability​ Coordinators Network

​The Interagency Sustainability Coordinators Network (ISCN) is comprised of representatives from key agencies that impact sustainability, as well as other interested agencies. The network meets six times a year and ensures that state agencies collaborate on sustainability programs and projects. 

In addition to regular meetings and collaboration, the network also combines resources for field trips and educational opportunities.

​State Agency Sustainability Resources

Agencies are managing energy strategically to increase efficiency and reduce energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and costs. The Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE) manages the bulk of the state energy programs and efforts - from grants and technical assistance to state agency energy use reporting. Agencies are required to track and report annual building energy use to ODOE, which is then shared in annual energy report cards. New construction and major renovation of state facilities are also subject to the State Energy Efficient Design (SEED) program, which requires state agencies to use energy efficient design methods.

​Agencies are doing their part to help divert materials from Oregon's landfills, and to reduce consumption of materials to begin with. The Department of Environmental Quality's Materials Management program is leading the way on research, policy and best practice. Other resources are listed below.

In addition, agencies owning water rights regularly report their water use to the Oregon Department of Water Resources.
