Municipal Climate Action: Sustainability Officers
This series brings together leaders and policymakers from municipalities, communities, and urban planning groups to discuss their efforts to build climate change resilience, with a focus on how climatetech startups can get involved.
The second installment of this series features sustainability officers from towns and cities in the United States. Sustainability directors have become increasingly influential in towns and cities, gaining more responsibility and authority. They continue to be champions for sustainability and resilience measures, but more than ever must also act as the honest brokers on all things sustainable. Their credibility and the success of climate resilience and justice projects rely on setting proper expectations, maintaining standards, vetting technologies and companies, and serving the town’s best interest.
This session is a great opportunity to learn how our community can best support them in this pivotal balancing act.
