Many of the challenges facing the United States today are a complex mix of environmental and economic factors. The nature of these challenges means that they are often too large or expensive for a single company or government agency to solve. But each sector brings strengths and capabilities that can be combined to create practical solutions. Public-private partnerships are a crucial catalyst for creating sustainable solutions that balance economic and environmental progress. By connecting businesses with government and NGO leaders, these partnerships can drive progess at a local, regional, and national level.
Companies are developing a wide array of tools, technologies, products, and services to create new markets and solve environmental problems. Cities across the country are implementing bold new visions to secure their ecological and economic futures.
BCLC's Bricks & Sticks Sustainability Symposium is designed to showcase outstanding examples of public-private partnerships making a difference today and help attendees make the connections necessary to create partnerships for the future. If you are working at the nexus of economic and environmental issues in the private sector, public sector, or non-government sectors, this event is for you. Let's work together to create and implement "win-win" solutions.
