Smart Cities Breakfast - Energy, Water & Waste
It is widely accepted that energy, water and waste are three of the most fundamental impacts we have on our environmental resources. Faced with the challenges of climate change and the strain on natural resources and raw materials, cities are seeking to reduce their ecological footprint, save resources, and be more self-sufficient when it comes to energy. At the same time, they are producing more and more waste. Yet it is also a source of materials and energy potential that is largely untapped. Waste recycling is part of the solution.
The commercial industry has been aware of these impacts for the last couple of decades and has been making significant moves to reduce their impact in these three spheres. But what about all the other buildings and infrastructure that make up our cities? In this session we will explore why all industries must work together as a whole to reduce our impact on energy, water and waste in order to create not just truly sustainable buildings, but sustainable communities and cities.
