Practical Sustainability

Jeff Kavanaugh and Corey Glickman

The race to carbon neutrality is top of mind for C-suite and frontline employees alike, yet we struggle to convert lofty goals into tangible results. Buildings and commerce are vital to this green future, but environmental challenges and market pressures block the path to sustainability.

Finally, a practical approach to sustainability has emerged, blending the physical and the digital, the human and the machine. From tech titans to niche unicorns, Practical Sustainability showcases the best of the digital stars and the roles required to mine this twenty-first-century gold rush, with over $8 trillion of existing commercial real estate that must become more intelligent and sustainable as quickly as possible.

Practical Sustainability is required reading for anyone involved with sustainability, intelligent buildings, and supply chains, illustrating how technology combined with physical environments is elevating human potential while ushering in a greener, more prosperous future.

As governments have launched their new green deals to implement the Paris Accord and the UN Agenda 2030, Glickman and Kavanaugh have provided a timely, much-needed, and actionable guide on how to make it happen. In Practical Sustainability, a well-researched and science-based handbook, they show in detail how to achieve environmental targets and carbon neutrality through circular commerce and exponential technologies across industries and smart cities. I highly recommend Practical Sustainability to everybody who seeks an integrally sustainable, fast road out of current existential crises and who wants to ensure the future of civilization on our beautiful blue planet.
