Chicago has long been known as a leader of innovative environmental initiatives, with sustainability as a key focus. Mayor Emanuel recently stated, "I want Chicago to be the greenest city in the world, and I am committed to fostering opportunities for Chicagoans to make sustainability a part of their lives and their experience in the city." At the same time, the city is establishing itself as a leader in technology and innovation, supporting and creating technology companies like never before. NEXUS is the place where sustainability and technology meet, and on Feb. 20th they will meet at DIRTT.
