At the Intersection of Infrastructure and Sustainability: The Future of Corporate Resilience
COVID-19 is not going away. What are the implications for the future?

In March 2022, the White House launched the Clean Air in Buildings Challenge, which called on all building owners and operators, schools, colleges and universities, and organizations of all kinds to adopt key strategies to improve indoor air quality in their buildings and reduce the spread of COVID-19, but many of the recommendations would increase energy demands and pose a conflict to long term carbon neutrality goals.

How can public and private sector leadership work together to influence public policy and embrace 21st century solutions so we can not only survive but thrive?

We have the opportunity to lead the way on the future of healthy, sustainable infrastructure.

Join us as we explore the White House guidance and complications, the impact on ESG goals, and how companies can sustainably incorporate improved indoor air quality. Our panel of experts includes Dr. Deborah Birx, former White House Coronavirus Task Force Coordinator and Chief Medical & Science Advisor for ActivePure; Heidi DuBois, Global Head of Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) at AEA; Chris Wallace, President and CEO of the North Texas Commission; and Amy Carenza, Chief Commercial Officer for ActivePure.
