- Regisiter for this free webinar on Thursday, December 8 from 12-1 pm Eastern! "Global Water Challenges in a Net-Zero Carbon World” with Executive Vice President of AECOM Dr. Beverley Stinson Join us for a topical and engaging discussion by Dr. Beverley Stinson and Mr. John Dorman of AECOM on the role of water and water professionals in climate change challenges. Climate change is primarily manifested as a water crisis. We feel its impacts through worsening floods, rising sea levels, shrinking ice fields, wildfires and droughts. However, we as a water industry can also mitigate climate change. Sustainable water management is central to building the resilience of societies and ecosystems and to reducing carbon emissions. This discussion will examine the opportunities we as water professionals have to address decarbonization and will share a case study from the New York City Department of Environmental Protection on their journey to carbon zero, energy neutrality and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. A presentation of a funding tool to access IIJA and IRA funding available to invest in our water infrastructure will also be presented. Register to attend
