Carbon Efficient City
Join us this month for a presentation with A-P Hurd, Author of The Carbon
Efficient City and Vice President at Touchstone Corporation.
Despite the numbing array of visions for more sustainable cities, neighborhoods, buildings, and transportation networks, remarkably little has been written about how we can get investment flowing to these challenges.
Recognizing the need for economic stability, the scarcity of public funds and the realities of market economics, The Carbon Efficient City identifies realistic opportunities for progress.
