Can an Infrastructure Sustainability Rating System
point the way toward more harmonious living?
To most people, infrastructure is not noteworthy, except when it fails.
We take the pipes, cables, roads, power plants, bridges, and the like that surround us for granted. Seldom do we consider the aggregate impact these systems have on how we live our lives.
This talk, presented by Robert Beinstein, PE, ENV SP, Director of Sustainability at The Environmental Financial Consulting Group, will center on the Envision Sustainable Infrastructure rating system as a tool for planners and designers to look at proposed projects through a holistic series of lenses that help communities maximize co-benefits and minimize negative impacts. It will explore the myriad ways infrastructure is interconnected and how that interconnectedness poses both risks and opportunities for communities.
Finally, it will suggest that societies rethink how they define and measure progress, proposing that perhaps it is time to think beyond economic success and GDP in the ongoing quest for an improving quality of life.
