About us

Sustainable Northwest brings people, ideas, and innovation together so that nature, local economies, and rural communities can thrive. We distinguish ourselves in the natural resource sector through an ability to bring together multiple, often opposing sides of an issue, and to craft and promote solutions through a collaborative process.

Our Vision

Our vision is that the Northwest’s rural communities thrive in harmony with the landscape. Resilient local economies provide quality natural resource management jobs that benefit human and natural communities. The next generation of leaders views land stewardship as an integral component of community health. We are a truly unique organization, occupying a critical place in national and regional efforts to balance natural resource use, rural economic development, and healthy and resilient ecosystems. For the last three years, we have ranked among the top 25 best non-profits to work for in Oregon.

Operating Principles

In all of our work, we promote: 1) collaborative, community-based solutions, 2) business models and markets that are sized appropriately to the available natural resource base, 3) networks that connect people and ideas, and foster innovation, and 4) public policy that supports sustainable natural resources management.
