Introducing Green is Gold, the Timbers' green campaign

Portland Timbers continue commitment to conservation and sustainability with ongoing and new season-long initiatives

The Portland Timbers today unveiled their environment-focused campaign, Green Is Gold. The campaign aims to promote nature conservation and sustainability in the community and at Providence Park through on-going and new season-long programs and activations with Stand Together and community partners.

The club has already unveiled multiple sustainability-focused programs for 2024, and new activations and initiatives will be introduced throughout the year.

The Timbers and TriMet have partnered to offer fans transportation to and from Providence Park on matchday. Matchday tickets will serve as proof of fare to ride TriMet busses or MAX trains starting three hours prior to the match and up to three hours after it ends.

The club will implement a reusable cup program at the stadium with Portland-based Bold Reuse. The pilot program in 2024 will see the use of reusable cups for alcohol beverages in Tanner Ridge, The Club and Lexus Lounge.

With the launch of the Nature Unites kit on Feb. 14, the Timbers and The Nature Conservancy will work together to educate, activate and raise awareness around The Nature Conservancy’s areas of focus —nature conservation, addressing climate change, and biodiversity loss — as well as encourage communities statewide to actively explore, experience and protect the outdoors.

The Timbers will continue to build upon ongoing initiatives, including LEED certification of Providence Park, offering bike parking at the stadium on matchday as alternative transportation and pillar Stand Together program Score A Goal, Plant A Tree with Friends of Trees.
