What is Sustainable Infrastructure? Building Consensus to Accelerate Financing

Public- and private-sector investors are seeking to advance sustainable, quality infrastructure to improve economic productivity, transition to a low-carbon economy, promote social wellbeing, and build climate resilience. Yet most new infrastructure isn’t fulfilling these goals. The disconnect often comes down to a lack of consensus on how to identify sustainable and resilient infrastructure projects and their benefits. Numerous global initiatives are competing to define these characteristics—leading to a confusing landscape for financiers and developers alike. During this panel discussion, experts will examine the merits, challenges, and opportunities related to different approaches to spur investment and construction of sustainable, quality infrastructure. This event is part of Sustainable Infrastructure: A Duke Climate Collaboration Symposium.

Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
