Houston Tomorrow and the Kinder Institute present
Sustainable Cities: The Business View
Four of Houston’s top quality of life organizations team up to explore the sustainable philosophies of some of the world’s most important companies - IBM, McKinsey, Siemens, and NRG.
Corporate leaders will explain their rationales for creating sustainable business models around the idea of sustainability, and increasingly around the idea of smart, sustainable cities.
Regional civic leaders will react to the corporate challenge to organize the Houston region’s towns and cities around the idea of sustainability - the notion of surviving and thriving into the future.
