Environmental sustainability is no longer optional; it’s become an imperative.
With the global population slated to grow to nine billion, leading nations of the world are prioritizing conservation of water and other precious resources, the greening of energy sources to establish a new equilibrium between safe and sensible growth on one side and responsible environmental stewardship on the other. The good news is that public-private partnerships abound in embracing this challenge, but more successful examples of high traction sustainability are needed.
