Reducing GHG or CO2 emissions takes a concerted effort, and the engineering and construction industry plays an important role to support a low carbon future through innovation, enhanced practices, and the future of work.
With more than 180 countries committing to nationally determined climate targets, covering 99 percent of global emissions, and about 65 percent focused on mitigating greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), the Paris Climate Agreement has advanced global efforts to tackle climate change.
Enhanced collaboration between civil society, government, and business in the planning, design and implementation of core and social infrastructures should grow economies; build resiliency; and help to solve societal problems.
Global megatrends require a step-change in the way we design, construct and operate structures and systems that will benefit society for the long term.
Bechtel's Amos Avidan discusses how Big Data is integral in designing more resilient energy systems.
Bechtel has contributed to a two-year study with re:focus partners culminating in a report, A Roadmap for Resilience that helps to guide cities on how to leverage private investment in building more resilient and integrated infrastructure.
