CoreNet Sustainability Community: Why You Should Be Thinking About Water

When:  Jul 20, 2016 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (ET)
Associated with  New York City

CoreNet’s Sustainability committee invites you to participate in a panel discussion about the complex linkages between sustainability and water. Along with temperatures, changes in water patterns are often the result of, and a means of gauging, climate change. From water scarcity to rising water levels, companies are ;increasingly more vulnerable to disruptions in ;their operations, supply chains and logistics. Its inextricable connection with energy further escalates water’s business impact. Managing water-related risks - and identifying opportunities - is increasingly important to CEOs, sustainability and real estate professionals.
