Sustainability, Growth and Resilience: A Guide for Business
Date/Time: October 6, 2022 (1-2PM ET / 10-11AM PT)
Just as companies are upping their game when it comes to addressing their sustainability and climate impacts, so, too, are cities, transit districts and other public agencies. They are taking a fresh look at their infrastructure — everything from water, power and transit systems to mobility hubs — through the lens of improving lives and livelihoods while making their communities more prosperous and climate-resilient.
The critical infrastructure that keeps cities running also can help companies better meet their sustainability goals. It's not just about technology. There's a significant people-centered approach at the heart of planning and designing decisions.
In this hour-long webcast, hear from experts and engineers at Black & Veatch, who have been helping keep cities’ lights on and clean water flowing for over 100 years, and from Tranzito, an urban smart mobility operator, about the StreetsLA program in Los Angeles, California. The program, which is re-imagining public transportation in the city, could forever alter U.S. perceptions about public transit and shared mobility, and also serves as a model for systems from a people-first perspective.
Join this session to hear from the experts, listen in on the discussion, ask your questions, and learn:
